Under the current Senate bill, a 64 year old might have to pay three times as much as a 25 year old, which would make the mandated purchase of health insurance from a private company, impossible to afford. Preconditions would boost the premium 50%. The bill would force over 30,000,000 people to buy insurance and be fined if they don't. That is 30,000,000 new customers for insurance.
Keith Olbermann joins Dean and asks that the bill be killed, saying it is meaningless and a complete give away to the insurance industry. He blames the president and suggest Obama may have a primary challenge.
I agree. Obama has been a gutless president from a progressive perspective.
