I was reading that the penalty for NOT paying health care insurance can run from $700-$1000 depending on how much money you make. I was reading http://minnesota.publicradio.org/collections/special/columns/news_cut/archive/2009/11/how_much_will_health_care_cost.shtml and it looks like it costs a lot.
I have a family of 3 (my husband, my daughter and I), and we generated just less than $12,000 last year. I was JUST approved for our state-funded program and that is only $20 a month, which comes out to $240 a year. I know we can NOT afford some $1,800 a year. Do you know if they are going to be subsidizing that? Any idea how much insurance might cost in our place?
What happens to all the unemployed/homeless people? Will they then too get arrested? I don't mean to sound ignorant, but I didn't think the bill was going to pass, and have no clue what to do now that it has.
