    I was half a sleep when I heard this on CNN this morning, but someone asked what the proposed savings would be if the public option passed. This is what I believe I heard. Can someone vouch on this or find it on the web?

    For a single person:

    If you make over $20,000: $4000 a year in premiums ($333 a month!)

    (Note: That is no fucking savings. I pay $340 now)

    If you make under $20,000: $1200 a year in premiums ($100 a month)

    This is all well and good for you...sorry no savings Vic...but guys like me who have a pre existing condition have very few "options" this would be a godsend.

    You're going to get pre-existing condition coverage with or without the public option, that's a separate part of the bill.

    The bill also says you get a free baby penguin if you give Ronald McDonald a blowie.

    The House has a bill. The Senate has a bill. The one they eventually pass (god willing. And by the by, fuck you Joe Lieberman) will look different than both. What actual savings you get if you are privately insured will be determined by the market.
