Senator Hillary Clinton announced today a health care plan that would require every American to buy private health insurance, but at $12,000 a year for a policy, Clinton did not say how average Americans would pay for it.

FTCR will discuss the implications of a health care plan that requires all Americans to buy policies but allows private health insurers to charge whatever they choose. FTCR will also discuss Senator Clinton's campaign contributions from private health insurance companies.
A report by the Kaiser Family Foundation showed that the average cost of coverage for a family of four is now $12,000. This is proof that the so-called 'individual mandate' is untenable and that real health care reform must rein in health insurance companies.
