121. You know less about English that you do about Economics....
"Typically" is not a strawman, it's a qualifier. Does EVERY employer-provided plan have a reasonably low deductible? No, but most of them do. Does EVERY person who self-insures purchase or low-deductible plan or a high-deductible plan with an HSA? No, but most of them do.

And since you have no idea what the deductible is on these plans that people may (or may) purchase at some point in the future -- neither do I -- you're really blowing smoke when you say that these plans aren't affordable because of their high deductions.

And then there's this, and please try to have an honest moment as you answer. Which is better?

No Insurance. Chronic, untreated illness. Disability and premature death.
No Insurance. Successful treament followed by bankruptcy and foreclosure.
Low-End Insurance. $10,000 in medical bills. Survival.
