It's enough to make you sick.
While the nation debates health-care reform, state Democrats are secretly considering $1 billion in new taxes on medical services, The Post has learned.
Although the taxes would be imposed on health-care providers, they'd be passed along to insurers or local governments. And it's ultimately taxpayers who'd be sucker-punched.
For GHI's policyholders, premiums surged 30 percent. That means the monthly cost for an individual shot up to $2,277 for HMO coverage, a $526 increase compared with a year ago. The price tag now comes to a staggering $27,324 a year.

Wow! Thanks. You just gave me a great idea. If this Healthcare reform passes I am going to start a temp staffing firm.
It appears that this entire healthcare reform plan is nothing but a way to raise taxes without calling them taxes.

You do know this will also effect job growth as well... Back when I ran my own company... Insurance was a huge part of my labor costs... So much so I had to keep my employee base small enough to be cost effective... I see a lot more jobs going to temps and contractors... people you don't need to insure as a small business owner
