How can this be? Certainly, the 42 percent inflation-adjusted run-up in health-insurance premiums encouraged some businesses to eliminate health coverage, which forced some of their employees to resort to HUSKY.

It’s called ‘crowd out’! Insurance companies are making huge profits on government programs. They don’t have to compete for available dollars because of the ‘government handouts’. They still ration though.

"And the program's fee structure perversely discourages a family of four, for example, from making a penny more than $61,950 lest their HUSKY premiums more than triple to $1,900 a year."

So a family of four gets coverage for about $450.00 a year if they make less than $61,950?

Between the wife and I we fall well short of that amount, my health insurance at work costs me $3,400 a year with a $4,000 deductable.

I will continue to pay for it and yes, I live in Connecticut.

Am I stupid or what!!!
