"Save Money" on Health Insurance?

So DarthDoyle tells us that health-insurance costs are a problem. Check.

And that large-group purchasing power is a solution. Check.

And that he'll put together a large group-purchasing alliance to help out. Check.

THEN he says that it will only cost $100 MILLION in taxes to "reduce costs."


...Doyle also proposed a "one-stop shop" of health insurance options where small businesses - those with 50 or fewer employees - and people not covered under group plans could pool their purchasing power and lower the cost of buying coverage.

That plan could include a subsidy of up to $100 million a year in the next budget cycle, which starts in 2009.

That's a lot of "free" tamales, Darth.
