Once again, I have never stated that you are in terrible shape there, and I have never stated that our system was a perfect system. All I have said is that I would prefer to keep our current system, and reform it rather than adopt a socialist system.

I see it day in and day out. I am a Canadian but my job is the administration of health benefits for an American Company, GE. We JUST finished open enrollment so all these figures are still in my head quite well. And i'm sorry, but a pre 65 retiree whose pension is 25k, paying 1100/mth in premiums is crazy. Unacceptable
