I left a job recently. One of the big reasons was that I was tired of paying over $1000/month for family health insurance - and it was not even good insurance with co-pays often running $40-50.
The American dream I grew up with - the opportunity for people to start a small business and create a modest but comfortable life for themselves - is over, and the cost of health insurance contributes to that fact. We have seen entire economic sectors taken over by a few huge corporate players that make such pursits fruitless.
I certainly do not hang my hat on everything Michael Moore says, but some of the illustrations in Sicko certainly point out the need to rethink the whole matter of healthcare in this country.
