Helloooo, anybody home? On one hand this is stating the obvious on the other it shows how much or how out of control health INSURANCE has become.

Insurance should be cheap enough that you should almost be able to forget about it or not flinch about paying a premium. But now INSURANCE or a health insurance payment is a month's rent, a month of food, a couple of utility bills etc. And one wonders why many opt not to carry health INSURANCE, until now an optional voluntary expense.
