How many American families can afford to pay $31,065 for family health insurance when 90% of working Americans earn less than $100,000 per year and 46% of working Americans earn less than $30,000 per year. After mortgage and car payments, rent, food, gasoline, clothing, beer & fajitas there is no money left for health insurance.
How much longer can employers continue to fool their workers? How much longer can they afford pretending to pay for group health insurance benefits for their workers when they never have?
Employers have never paid a dime towards health insurance, its the employees who have by way of lower wages. Taxation (stealing from one to pay another) further reduces family incomes.
The American middle class is getting screwed.
