For a family of four, we are struggling just to maintain our middle income life style in California with income taxes, property tax and all other private insurance premiums we have to pay already. Now comes this new Obamacare requirement that mandates the minimum coverage we have to buy. Our medical premiums just shot through the roof and find ourselves struggling even more just to be in compliance with the law with less protection then we need. We are basically paying our monthly premium and pay again for any medical treatments we received before meeting the high deductibles. This is not a insurance plan but rather a subsidy plan for the poor while the middle class is paying for it.
What we need is a government plan modeled after the Canadian health plan of which everyone is treated the same and paying his own fair share.
