3. I think you got him there. I had that coversation with my girlfriend.
I have told her that there is no way they can charge something like $250 a month for this mandated coverage to people that don't make much. That is roughly what it would cost me to put her on my insurance. There is no way they will get that much out of people working at or around minimum wage.
Anyone low income would have to be subsidised. They may not like paying their contribution but I think it will work out. I was guessing $50 a month would be close.
