    That is some amazing health insurance. No co-pays. No minimums, no maximums.
    For $7200 a year?

    You do realize that almost no Americans other than Congressman have health insurance that good- right?

    That is simply not true! What they are calling for is MEDICARE for all....or something similar. Where the govt acts as the insurer, and the hospitals and doctors are all in the private sector.

    NO ONE is calling for the hospitals and doctors becoming government owned, like the VA system.

    Cons are good at repeating whatever the Alt-Right tells them about health care.

    If they're government paid, they're government owned.

    I have read it all- you have Blue Cross through your wife's employer- and you pay $7200 a year- and have no idea how much your wife's employer pays- it is likely to be more than you are paying. And you didn't pay a dime of out of pocket expenses for cancer surgery, hip replacement, back surgery or oral surgery.

    I frankly don't know of anyone who has such gold plated fantastic health insurance- and I applaud the luck or fortune of your wife to be employed by such a fantastically generous employer.

    Enjoy it and don't ever let your wife leave that job.

    By any chance is she employed by a medical group or hospital?

    (and that is another problem with our current health insurance).

    For a definition of "beautifully" that very few people OTHER than you are actually interested in.
