Baucus health insurance cost $165,800 per uninsured person: you do the math

In September, President Obama claimed that 30 million Americans "cannot" get health insurance.

Yesterday's CBO analysis of the $829 billion Baucus Plan revealed that it will still leave 25 million Americans without health insurance.

So for $829 billion, we can insure five million more people.

That comes to $165,800 per uninsured person.


Baucus plan clears CBO by raising taxes by at least $380 Billion

Don't take my word for it. The Congressional Budget Office spells it out [PDF].
