McCain plans to tax your employers for the insurance they provide you. In turn this will force many companies to drop medical insurance. McCain thinks that a $5,000 deduction will help you pay for a private insurance plan. Private insurance averages around $12,000 a year and goes up depending on the quality of the plan.Answer Question

Currently, we pay $4,000 a year for an open access plan. If my employer drops me then we are left to find another plan, most likely a HMO, which typically costs around $12,000 a year. Even with McCain's $5,000 tax deduction, that leaves me to pay $7,000 a year. That is $3,000 a year more than I am paying now. We can't afford that which means we would probably go without insurance.

McCain's healthcare plan blows. It wont fix the problem of millions of uninsured Americans. Its more of the same.

McCain's health care plan stinks. I agree with Mrs. Bonita, it will lead to more Americans without health insurance coverage.
Obama's plan is more comprehensive. It is going to question the high cost of medical care, he also wants to eliminate the pre-existingcondition clause. Many American cannot get health insurance coverage to treat pre-existing conditions which is a disgrace. Imagine being diagnosed with cancer, loosing your job, then your insurance and not being able to get coverage to treat your cancer because your cobra ran out. You have 18 months to get new coverage while on cobra for the pre-existing condition to be covered, if not, insurance will not cover it.
