    Not true. The increase in taxes for most people would be smaller than what they pay now for health insurance that they would no longer have to pay.

    Then why would there be almost $2 trillion added to the national debt every year?

    Do a little research on the Tax Policy Center:

    Tax Policy Center Releases Flawed And Biased Analysis Of Marco Rubio Tax Cut

    Even if TPC is not capable of producing a modern scoring model to analyze the Rubio plan, they can at least acknowledge that others like JCT and the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) have and are constantly refining those models. TPC does not do so.

    Furthermore, CBO has given a basic rule of thumb on the relationship between economic growth and taxes which TPC also failed to mention: for every additional one-tenth of one percentage point in real economic growth, tax revenues derived from this growth yield $327 billion over a decade.

    ====================

    Plenty of negative comments about this center and their reliability.

    How to pay for universal healthcare.

    Currently, I have to pay nothing for my health insurance. Are you saying that my taxes would be nothing?

    I'll pay the higher premiums for PRIVATE insurance thst I'll use rather than lower rates for something I'll never get a value from.
