For 30 years now healthcare insurance premiums have gone up 20% per year. Every five years the premium double in price. Now my insurance pays for NOTHING until I reach $6000. This is on top of my employer deducting $1000 from my paycheck every month. After $6000 I have to pay 20% of the cost until $7500. Once $7500 hits everything is covered 100%.
That is the crappiest policy I have ever heard of. You have a $6,000 deductible AND your employer deducts $1,000 per month for healthcare? That's the crappiest employer I have heard of, too. That just sounds too bad to be true. Who is your employer and what is your job? I'm guessing you wont say, which I understand, but this claim is begging to be verified.

I'm sorry you're going through this. It would probably cost less to pay into national health care via taxes than for everyone to continue funding the insurance companies. ☹

What American's don't understand and seems no one will bring it up is: When you have a national health system , these doctors and staff all work as govt. employees. That is what is stopping a national health program in America, but NO politician will tell you that.

I'm not buying it, I thought he recently told us he has a minimum wage job in which case there would be no premium cost to him through the ACA.
He has no reason to lie. He wouldn't.
High school students working as a cashier at target for their first job ever make about as much as college educated nurses in the UK.
