McCain said he would give everyone $5000 to buy insurance in whatever state they wanted, so they could shop around.

Now if you have insurance through your employer, you aren't going to be able to do that, unless you want to give up the group rates you have.

$5000 won't go far on an individual health insurance policy, because the deductibles can be 2000 to 5000.
Some are less or more, but the point is...

You will be paying a huge premium if you leave your employers' insurance.

Now, McCain wants to tax your health care benefits with your employer.

So, your company is going to raise your rates.

So, what is the $5000 for?

See, no one is going to lose any money but the American Taxpayer.
