So you think your companies health insurance plan is costly now?  Think your taxes took a bit of a jump on that first check of 2013? Oh, baby, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!  According to an article from CNS News, the IRS has reported that the annual national average bronze plan premium for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) is about $20,000.  The ‘bronze’ plan will be the lowest tier of insurance available under his majesty's plan for the masses.

This is working out to be just exactly what I and so many others in the conservative media have been trying to communicate for over three years now: it’s all about the taxes.  Can’t afford the coverage?  Then you pay the penalty.  And the IRS coffers will swell.  Obama supporters, you’ve been hoodwinked.  I’ve already heard it from a number of people; the crying, the whining, the ‘I can’t believe this’, blah, blah, blah.  I told you so.  Many of us tried to tell you so.  Obama has long wanted us to be like Europe.  Europe wants us to be more like Europe.  It's only fair, right?  The progressives, from Teddy Roosevelt right on down to Obama and his faithful sidekick Lil’ Joe Biden, have been working us ever so slowly in this direction for over a century.  See the complete CNS piece here.  Take our poll below.
