A few facts about our current Government run healthcare sector:
The unfunded liability of Medicare is estimated to be $85 trillion, with a "T."
Estimates of the number of Doctors who refuse to treat Medicaid patients is between 40%-50%.
Now, the geniuses in Congress want more trillions and more government involvement. This is insanity on steroids.
The tax options include:
- Increasing the price of soda and other sugary drinks by 10 cents a can.
- Applying a potential 2 percent income tax increase to single taxpayers earning more than $200,000 a year and households earning more than $250,000.
- A new employer payroll tax could target 3 percent of employers' health care expenditures.
- Taxing employer-provided health insurance benefits above certain levels - a less likely option but one that still is in the running.
