Screwing the middle class

I was listening to NPR this morning (during commercials it was Don Wade and Roma on WLS radio with snippets of Bob and Tom) but during their discussion of the health care bill (@ 3:27), I heard that the insurance requirement was going to cost a middle class family, which was defined as a family of three earning at least $50,000/year) about 13% of their income. 13% of $50,000 is $6500/year. How can ANY family afford to have that much removed from their income??? We'll talk about the Constitutional issues of REQUIRING health INSURANCE in a later post.
