More Information on HR 3200

On page 149-150 of HR 3200, it states that any employer that does not offer the “public option” shall pay a “contribution” in lieu of coverage. This contribution will be from 2-6% of tax on his payroll if he makes between 250,000-400,000. Or 8% if he makes more than $400,000.

Though our president assures us that we will be able to keep our current insurance this is true, but he has put everything in the bill possible to make it harder for employers to keep private health insurance.

Also on page 167 of HR 3200, it states that:

“TAX ON INDIVIDUALS WITHOUT ACCEPTABLE HEALTH CARE COVERAGE.
20 (a) TAX IMPOSED.—In the case of any individual
21 who does not meet the requirements of subsection (d) at
22 any time during the taxable year, there is hereby imposed
23 a tax equal to 2.5 percent of the excess of—”

This section also encourages individuals to switch to government health care/”public option”. We can see through these short sections that despite what politicians are telling us the government is trying to “encourage” or should I say coerce us into switching to government health care.
