To summarize, under the House bill:
- Freddy and Kelsey are a 40-year old couple with two kids. They own and run a small tourist shop in Orlando, Florida.
- They are the only employees, and earn a combined $90K per year.
- They cannot afford even an inexpensive health insurance plan, and so the House bill would make them pay $2,050 in higher taxes.
The government is taking the personal choice out of many aspects of our lives these days, and now health care is one more of them.
As Hennessey explains it, this bill will raise taxes (fines/penalties) on a huge group of people that cannot obtain health insurance through their small businesses and would get no subsidy from the government to buy care through a public plan.
