It is my understanding that everyone will be covered. The poor will get it for free, those who are rich will pay for their own health care. Those who make less than $88,000 will receive a government subsidy. Those who are working and making $90,000 to $250,000 will have to pay full price for insurance and higher taxes to support the others. Many of them may just pay the fine and wait until they get sick or injured then sign up and pay then.

Yes, I think that you are correct but most of that doesn't start until 2014. And the IRS will be the ones who will be in our lives even more than before and will decide if we are following the rules. They need to hire about twelve to sixteen thousand more people to enforce the rules. Just what we need! More government goons in our lives.

Well, I wouldn't try using it just yet if I were you.

"Does the new health bill really mean EVERYONE is insured now?" In a word....no. May I ask a question though...did you support this bill?
