taxpayeriam you do know that this is in addition to what we already have to pay to cover our dependants right? I make on average $2200 a month before taxes and deductions. Basic medical coverage for my wife and kids costs me over $500 a month, then add in dental, and eye coverage. Before that even comes out there is TSERS retirement that is a manditory 6% of my check. That $11-$22 a month is diapers, and milk or gas that we will have to go without. All of this for a job that no one ever thinks about. You expect me to keep the worst members of society behind bars where they belong, on very little pay. I would gladly play for my own insurance if my salary was on par with federal and private sector levels.
