As more specifics come out about this plan, the more it looks dead in the water. So if you live in Massachusetts and make $54,000 a year or more you will be forced by law to buy family medical coverage starting at $12,000?

Do you think this will work or are the figures way off?

CNN - Romney's new state-sponsored insurance clearinghouse ensures this, giving individuals (and small businesses) access to group rates. The second key to compulsory coverage is to make sure it is affordable - through either low premiums or subsidies. It's here that Romney's plan relies on a magic asterisk for up to 40 percent of his state's uninsured.

Mittcare will be free to those below the poverty line; subsidies taper off as incomes rise to three times the poverty line. But individuals making more than $30,000 and families of four with more than $54,000 are on their own. With solo policies in Massachusetts today running $6,000 a year and family coverage $12,000 or more, even reasonable group prices may be out of reach for many.

They should be looking at a way to make it more affordable for all instead of looking into how to force it upon all.

That's great that they give it to people below poverty, but the people in the middle range are going to be dieing paying that. I'm not sure what the average income is in MA but here in NE Ohio 54,000 for a family of four is like middle class working family, an added 12,000 in an already outrageous economy would break people. Heck gas prices are breaking some already.

One more way to get rid of the middle class, they want a poverty line and then jump up to very wealthy upper class.
