Hi there, hope this is in the right place. This is my first try at a thread so hope it goes well. I ask for forgiveness with my awful grammar, french
is my mother tongue.
I love to follow world events, the US is such an interesting subject to read about, but i am sadened by the amount of media i can watch, but i cant
understand whats up or down.
I will share some info and would love if people dont mind to share the same or close too.
Im divorced, have 2 lovely daughters that live with there mom.
I consider miself middle class, i make close to 36k a year, heres where id like to learn a bit.
I live in Brithish Columbia,Canada a very expensive province to live in( minimum wage is 10.25), I pay about 12k in taxes of my checks every year,
including government pention plan, various taxes that the government deems necesary.
I had to pay for a family of four, my ex was a stay at home mom, around 80 to 150 a month for the bc health card ( to use at the doctor). It went with
how much money was made in the last tax year. On top with my work i had a choice to get extra insurance, to cover if i get injured and cant work abd
also to lower cost of going to the eye doctor, dentist, chiro. That was 80 dollars a month. So i payed at the max 230 a month. Not much but pulling
2100 a month not easy with 4 people.
So my question if this makes any sense, what does a family in the US face in average to be comfortable, im sure it changes from state to state, but im
With this obamacare, the last budget fight, im trying to understand everyone position.
thanks for taking the time.
