19. $10 per person

Assuming 200 million people, that's $10 per person. Assuming something closer to 300 million (which is where we actually are) that's even less. Of course, not every single American is spending money on health insurance. Spouses, children, whatever, they are covered by someone's health insurance premium. So let's use the common "two and two" which is two adults and two children. That means that one person is paying for 4 people. So that's $40 per person purchasing health insurance. $40. That's $40 out of a MONTHLY payment of anywhere from $300 to $1800 per year for any basic policy. It can be even higher. So, yeah, "Obama care" saved the population a couple of billions. A couple of billions that might pay for ONE MONTH of copays for their medication.

Man that was worth 18 months or so of political capital and time on health INSURANCE reform that didn't do diddly squat for health CARE. (Which is the only sentence Prosense will quote)
