$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.
I mean I $49.78 and another $45. I don't mean 45%. That was a typo. I'm looking at my former pay stub here. Sorry for the error. The politicians and the insurance companies lie about the Canadian system to keep us all tied to big business. The Ontario OHIP has a few imperfections, but on the whole, I prefer it to what I have here now. This is yours very truly.
