one point on the baucus bill is that poor families will be given tax credits (not breaks) to offset the cost of insurance. If you don't get everyone involved it is very difficult to cover those with preexisting and expensive conditions and be profitable. Seems like we want to have our cake and eat it too. we want to have affordable care and get everyone covered yet we want to respect personal decisions and let people opt out and not contribute to the cause. tough call

You know those who don't contribute get sick and then we will still give them free healthcare at the emergency room and everyone with insurance or who pays the bill gets stuck with the bill. Or they declare bankruptcy and again those responsible people get stuck with the bill.
