I have a question about Measure 101. It says in the Voters Pamphlet there will be assessments or tax on some hospitals, the Public Employees' Benefit Board and some health care facilities. The way I understand it, public employees' health care packages and hospital services care will be assessed or taxed, which means that we (the people whom are not called low income) will have to pay more for our insurance and care from medical care givers. If this is the case, eventually we will not be able to afford coverage.
If anyone is going to be assessed or taxed let there be a bill or measure that makes it so everyone is going to pay for it. Someone has to put a stop to the bills or measures that try to single out groups to assess or tax for low income benefit.
