Government care - balance due — $7,110

Feel the love, the government compassion... And if you don't pay, go directly to jail.

Baucus-care will hit middle-class families quite hard. From the AP via Don Surber:

Ricardo Alonso Zaldivar of the Associated Press is not rolling over and playing brain-dead on the health insurance reform issue, reporting today: "A family of four headed by a 45-year-old making $63,000 a year is in the middle of the middle class. But that family would pay $7,110 to buy its own health insurance under the plan from the committee chairman, Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont."

Bu-bu-but I thought they said Obamacare would get a big subsidy.

Zaldivar: "The family would get a tax credit of $3,970 to help pay for a policy worth $11,080. But the balance due — $7,110 — is real money. Maybe it's less than the rent, but it's probably more than a car loan payment."
