How much longer is the average person/business in America going to accept paying double what healthcare should cost? Because in just about 6 more years, the cost of health insurance (split between you and your employer) will consume 40% of your pre-tax income. I’m not being an absurd alarmist. I’m being a realist basing this question on the rise of the cost of health insurance in the past 8 years and the projections for the next 6 years. It’s happening. And I’m happy to hear that the individual is now feeling the pinch.
