I've copied a section of anlysis from John David Lewis, A professor at Duke. He does a great job of explaining the Legalese contained in the Healthcare bill. He quotes the bill verbatim, and then offers his analysis. It will be much cheaper to pay the 8% tax than for a company to pay for private health insurance. Meaning, in just a couple of years almost everyone will be forced to go with the government option when their company cancels private health insurance. The government will have a monopoly on health insurance, and the 8% tax won't be enough to cover costs, meaning the government will go into debt even more. Other things to consider are the hundreds of thousands of employees in private insurance that will be jobless, and the loss of billions in tax revenue that the government currently collects. It just doesn't add up.
