$850 per month? You don't mean it? Then why are people against the public option. I paid 49.78 per month in Ontario, Canada for extra coverage for my family from Sun Life (100% medication, 100% everything else). Of course I paid an additional 45% per month on my pay as healthcare coverage for the Ontario Health Insurance Program, and I thought it was high.
Let's all ask for the public option, and the insurance mafia will cut their prices.
