The 16 million listed in this Fox News story that would get rebate checks.”The nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation has projected refunds would total about $1.3 billion and go to roughly 16 million people who buy their own policies or get them through an employer.” I’m never quite convinced about the Kaiser Family Foundation’s ‘nonpartisan’ status – or how that translates to unbiased with respect to healthcare funding issues.
Again – not really sure how much of a rebate there is to be. My family’s healthcare costs went up 40% this year and 20% last year. This makes me wonder if the insurance companies aren’t forced to overcharge under Obamacare and automatically drive unusually large numbers of ‘rebate’ checks. Is it a faux-bate?
