The latest ad opposing healthcare reform mimicks the Mac ads - "I'm healthcare reform...And I'm Jenny."
"Jenny" asks about Obama's plan "taxing" her $1000. No, the guy playing "reform" says, it's not a tax, but a fine.
And then we get to the heart of the argument: "12 percent of my income?!" exclaims Jenny.
But her figures - which she has volunteered - mean she makes only $8000 a year. And if that's true, then she would almost certainly qualify for subsidies to help her afford coverage.
And we must add that it is a horrible horrible day indeed when the government makes you get car insurance and home insurance (if you have a federally guaranteed mortgage), but has only now begun to suggest that maybe we should get health insurance...
