Iím telling all again. If youíre dealing with private health carriers not through your employer.....

The years 60-65 are fucking brutal. And they're considering adding 2 more years on?

Fuck that! Big Time! With a huge deductible and out of pocket plan to keep your premium low
you can expect those two years ( without Obamacare ) to cost you at least an extra 12 thousand.
And thats if youíre healthy.

1. That sounds about right. I'm 64, buying on the open market. Reasonably healthy, over $650/month.

3. I'm 58 and paying $680 a month in premiums, up from $604 a year ago.

That's more than my rent, more than my car payment, my single largest monthly expense.

Fuck this shit!

National health care now.

Fuck the pharmaceutical companies--just expropriate them.

Fuck the health insurance parasites.

Fuck the for-profit hospital chains.

God, I wish I lived in a civilized country. Health care should not be a for-profit good.

4. You know who agrees with you? The private insurers.

They don't want to have to take on those higher-cost patients any more than the higher-cost patients want them.

The Fed. govt. would save a little money at the expense of individuals, who would all end up paying more.

A lose-lose for patients and insurers.

5. My premium is $519 going up to $643 in February for

me and my wife. I'm 53. This is just untenable. Luckily, I may be getting a job with a big company soon. I don't really like being stuck in a job - but that's the modern serfdom we're faced with without socialized medicine. Republicans claim to love small business, and they hate socialized medicine. How stupid. Socialized medicine would be the biggest boon to small business imaginable.
