    Seems to me this is no cheaper than the ACA , the insurance companies raised the rates and if you think they are going to come down without the ACA, think again. Also , due to right to work laws, many employers are not going to be helping and offering Health insurance if the Republicans have their way, Read about it.
    You who voted Pub, in the long run, just votes against yourself.

    I saw an ad for donate to cancer research on TV, why I said, only the rich elites will benefit from it. Save your money , your going to need it for Health insurance even those who cost share at work. Tomorrow you can get fired for no reason, just for being old, over 50, had to lay you off , oh sure you can get a lawyer if you can afford to, and you can get cobra for 18 month, at a high price, then you are on your own. Good luck.

    My employer pays half of my premiums and 25% of my spouses. Two thousand dollar deductible for each of us before it is 80/20. That means I paid $5140 personally for coverage and an additional $2300 in deductibles this year. Face it, health insurance is already a myth for the middle class. Only the rich or poor can afford to have it and use it.

    Maybe you should work at being a valued employee they don't want to do without.

    I'm retired, but that does not mean I do not believe in affordable health insurance and adequate health care. Your employee can one day not find you to be of value, don't ever count on the goodness of your employer to take care of you.

    What a bizarre way of thinking. To you an employer is a teat to nurse off of. Businesses should not be involved in your health care, period. Affordable health care is what you feel like affording. If you want to spend your money on pot and get the most minimum coverage, or none at all that should be your business, not mine.

    The more government gets involved the more expensive it gets, like everything else. What a nation of dependent needy lemmings modern liberals have become!

    If you believe in that why do you support Obama care?


    Its not health insurance with $6,000 plus deductables.
