How much do you pay for insurance?Submitted by bigsurjune on Tue, 08/05/2014 - 11:33
I had a talk with my friend in the US tonight. We got on the topic of health insurance. He's an entrepreneur, like myself, and he said he pays 25K for health insurance for himself, wife, and 2 kids.
I almost shat myself!
I said, "Twenty five with three zeros behind the comma?" He said, "Yup."
I told him, "I was just complaining to my wife the other day that our international insurance is due and I hate giving 6K to this company for no reason." Obviously you can imagine his reaction to $6000.00 per annum.
Funny thing is, I can use my insurance in any country but the USA.
He told me that the ACA has just made things even more ridiculous now, too.
So, my question, where's the revolution??????????????????????????
I remember my grandmother telling me that in her day, Presidents were afraid of two things... Communism and housewives!
WTH happened to our county? Are folks that poor, dumb, deaf and blind now?
(I'm being sincere here. I left the US in '95 as a single man, now I'm married and still out... but don't think I can afford to come back now!)
SO WHAT DO YOU PAY?
