I don't know about the tax rate you're paying, but if you're getting off for less than 12k a year then you're getting a better deal than we are, and probably better coverage on top of that, since at that rate the co-pays are still pretty high depending on what you need. Also that's a 12k a year price tag, not as percentage of wages, if you don't make enough to pay for coverage and live on, then something has to go.

That's one of the reasons I asked how long it's been since you were in the US. The last ten years have seen the average cost of health insurance more than double, while the standard of care hasn't improved (I think it went down actually). Currently putting us in 37th place according to the WHO. Surprisingly enough France and Italy are in first and second on that list.

The true man wants two things: danger and play. For that reason he wants woman, as the most dangerous plaything.
