In a move that many think is just a few steps short of being suicidal because of the economic implications, the newly passed health care reform bill contains legislation that states most Americans will be required to carry health insurance, and that the government will provide federal subsidies to those who can’t afford it.
This is interesting from the point of view of where is the money for the subsidies going to come from in the first place? Right now the nation is struggling to get its national debt under control; while on the other hand they are talking about spending trillions for health care reform. This is definitely food for thought for the discerning health insurance reform advocate.
Here is something else to also ponder – penalizing consumers and companies if they defy government requirements to provide health insurance access to all.
