I am concerned that the taxes to pay for the program start in 2010 with no benefits until 2014. Insurance companies will be taxed on their premium revenue (for all polcies not just cadillac) and they will have to pass it through to consumers as premium increases which will hurt all of us but particularly those of us who pay our own premiums. This has already happened to me in october when Oregon began assesseing insurance companies a 1% tax to pay for the uninsured. My company increased my premiums immediately. This could be a major issue for a lot of people and could result in an increase in the uninsured as premiums rise above their ability to pay.
