But that's your choice AHS. I'm not trying to be argumentative, but if insurance is that important to you, go find a job where it is offered. Businesses, and this country, were built by people that took chances that carried significant uncertainty. Life with uncertainty is not for everyone. Some would rather know they have a small amount of money coming to them upon retirement, but others would like to bet on themselves. We should not be forced to take the safe route with no upside if we don't want to.Here's my stance:
Me and my wife both have decent/good jobs, we bought a $90K house about 4-5 months, but since I work purely on commission and her place of employment only allows her to work 4 days/week neither of us have any sort of health insurance and there's no way we can afford health insurance from an outside source. How in the world is that right?
I know we are just 2 of millions of people in this country in the same boat. Luckily we are only 26 about to be 27 so we don't have the typical healthy problems that "older adults" have but still, God-forbid something does happen and we are sunk financially.
