Izvestia on the Senate bill:
The penalty for violating this requirement could be as high as 2 percent of a taxpayer’s household income. Penalties would total $15 billion over 10 years, up from $8 billion under Mr. Reid’s original proposal, the Congressional Budget Office said.
In the next 10 years, the government would also collect $28 billion in penalties from employers who did not offer health benefits to employees.
Can anybody reverse engineer non-compliance numbers out of this?
Both for "taxpayers" and for employers?
