(1) the individual mandate: all state residents are required to purchase healthcare insurance. The gov will step in to help those who can't afford it.
(2) the employer mandate: all employers (w/ 11+ employees) are required to help pay for insurance ($295 per employee)
I hope Jacksonville, Florida and the rest of the country will follow the example of Massachusetts when it comes to taking care of it's poor and unemployed in different ways
The questions are....
What will I do now?
How much do I have to pay?
Can a small business can afford the cost of care?
The local government is still not helping me?
What about new taxes?
My plan was A Total Free Care for all residents of Massachusetts paid by the Local and Federal Government.
