well it is a human rights issue in the sence that no one can FORCE you to make a payment to a private company

I do not believe the citizens of the United States will allow this to happen.

The formula is pretty complicated. Basically, though, people who make three or four times the poverty level would get enough federal money so that they would not have to pay more than about 10 percent of their income for a decent health insurance package.
America is a capitalistic freemarket, the government should not regulate business to control profits and greed.
Profits come first.
So the government health care program is not about the health of Americans or your tax money it is about the governments concern that free enterprise continues to flurish and prospers in America.
Business must continue to grow and prosper without any controls. Profits are #1!
