'cause he had the nerve to turn 50.Healthy as a whip, works out, never goes to the doctor except for routine recommended stuff.He owns his own business so he has to carry his own insurance.

Every year it goes up a alot more I would say 25 % increase on average but this year come on. Is it because they won't be able to raise it up any more once the health care bill goes through so lets get it up as high as possible?

Keep in mind that when I was self employed and I am 9 years younger than him but because I am a women and could possibly become pregnant they would charge me $150 extra a month. It is really some sort of sexual discrimination that they can make women pay more who is 9 years younger.That should be a whole different thread though.

Here is a real interesting case one of my patients told me that when she was very young she needed a kiney transplant and got it.Then her guardian changed insurances and the new insurance company said she had a pre-existing condition so they would not cover her very expensive meds that helped her body not reject the kidney.So guess what she had to let her kidney die and had to go back to dialysis. Someone call Michael Moore that is the most absurd stupid thing I have how cheap is it for her insurance to pay for dialysis?
