CBO: Obamacare will force families to buy insurance costing at least $12,000 per year

Ouch! That is going to hurt. Some people will receive subsidies, but they phase out at 4 times the poverty level.

If Congress passes the Senate health-care plan, according to an analysis by the Congressional Budget Office, American families will be required by federal law to buy a federally approved health insurance plan that will cost a minimum of $12,000 per year--and, on average, will cost $15,000 per year -- whether their employer or the government helps them with the premium or not. ...

...According to the CBO analysis, the insurance plans the Senate bill would require families to purchase would cost an average of $15,200 per year in 2016.

Those figures are nowhere in the most recent offering from the CBO, the one that dropped today.

Where are you getting the figures from? Are they referring to a plan that covers one person? A couple? A couple plus kids?

Would your post leave a different impression if your readers knew that the average plan was already $13K?
