The Congressional Budget Office recently released a report that the cost of health care reform is more than expected. Few people are surprised, we knew the costs would be higher than estimated. It’s our government representatives who buried their heads in the sand and now have to make cuts to meet the promised budget. Health care reform is at risk of falling apart. To date 41 states are questioning the constitutionality of the individual mandate. If the individual mandate is not forced, the whole plan falls apart. Not only will millions of uninsured not have coverage, costs of individual plans will continue to skyrocket and corporations will end employee sponsored healthcare because paying a $2,000 penalty is less expensive than paying twice that much for employee health insurance. This is what happens when one party pushes through a plan without thinking through the realities of the proposal.
