    Obama's health plan is tough on the middle class - Aug. 20, 2009

    Fortune's Shawn Tully has done a series of articles in which he/she crunched the numbers and calculated what it would cost a typical American if enacted....
    The real losers will be those with Health Savings accounts, those high deductible plans where you pay a huge deductible but save on the premiums much as is done with auto insurance or homeowner's insurance. The insured then has an incentive to stay healthy (and save money) but still is covered but these types of plans will be eliminated under the proposed legislation.

    They are not a panacea but at least people should have the option to choose what is best for themselves and their families without being denied the option.

    Numbers and facts are no fun, how you 'feel' and good intentions are more important than reality.../scarcasm...;)
