    I think its a great idea. When you take the plan as a whole, the middle class tax reduction will offset this. I have insurance though my company. Even if they are not offset with tax breaks its still a good idea. My 12k/yr plan will cost me @ 20% taxes an extra 2400/yr. And since I have a employer plan, I get the $5000 in cash. Netting me $2600 cash in my pocket.

    People who don't have employer insurance will be able to buy a great medicaid add-on. Or those in the middle, between middle class and Medicaid, will be able to afford a good (catastrophic) hospital plan to keep them out of bankruptcy, with enough left over for a HSA cushion.
