in the previous articles discussing this topic the usual example given by the apologist for obamacare base their discussions on the costs incurred by a "27-year old" male, who is assumed to be basically healthy.
are you 27 years old? no, most of us aren't. let's get right to the point, and discuss the actual monthly premium costs for most people.--
i live in the state of oregon. in oregon, private health insurance coverage for a 40 year old male costs around $650 a month.
again in oregon, private health insurance coverage for a 60 year old male costs between $1100 and $1250 a month, depending on who is marketing the plan. that's around, more or less, $14 to $15,000 a year.
that's for a single male. toss in a wife, and a couple kids under an umbrella plan, and you are talking real money.
i've a question for you, which you should think about a bit. and, that is, why don't the proponents of obamacare reveal such truths about the costs for older persons? and, the fact is, quite a few of us are older, and the above figures are more reflective of the real costs involved. than assholes like jordan weissmann are talking about.
