Before I paid zero.
Why do you think you can make that choice better than me?
The only people here that get free medical are those on some sort of welfare payment.

I have never understood the American health care system or why you need to pay so much for it. I mean out of my monthly wage I pay in the UK $223.00 (Yep done the conversion for ya ) National Insurance and $307 in tax, that tax then is split over all the services including health care, fire etc etc.
The only time I spend more on health care is if I need a prescription which costs me $12. I have had 3 opertions in the last 12 months and have spent a total of $36 this year more on my health care. If you had truly social health care you wouldnt have to worry about these costs lol.
Though it is a shame that you are being fleeced more and more money for insurance
