The US healthcare system is, quite frankly, filled with profiteering, which is why it costs the US government more than the NHS costs Westminster.
I really don’t know why anyone defends such a screwed up system. It’s very difficult to fix when so many Americans think that it’s the bees knees… at least we admit the NHS has problems!
Let’s just move to France!

My husband is the only one working at the moment (I’m in nursing school) and he brings home about $25K a year. Our insurace premiums just doubled because of all of the reform. We’ll be paying $440 a month now for the two of us which is over 20%. It’s a 3k/6k family out of pocket max with $15/$45 copays for primary/specialist. Hopefully when I get out of school and have a job I can have my own insurance which should be cheaper.

With just me, it’s just under 4%, but once baby comes, it’ll be 11% of each paycheck. Ouch!
