Ya think ??
Wait for it.....$17,000.00 annually.
That is AFTER the 25% increase this year
and if they SAY 10-12 % you know it will be more like 30 to 50%
I am guessing 15,000 family premiums
The folks in SF waking up? Nah...I must be the one dreaming.
wow! so you mean my guess of 15 was LOW???????????
Hope. Change. Dog Food.
By the way did you know that the Employer paid portion of that will now be considered taxable income?
Gasp, even liberal journalists can be brought to a first grade economics level of understanding.
Just don’t bring the math beyond simple addition and subtraction...remember, they are liberals.
*shocking just shocking*! What a bunch of maroons....as Bugs Bunny would say!
Hope. Change. Dog Food.

You missed the story this morning about dry dog food causing diseases in humans?
I heard that. That is gonna be brutal for the working stiffs who haven't had a raise in the two-three years.
all part of the plan....achieve a Cloward-Piven collapse of the private insurance market and you’ll have voters begging you for Single Payer
Daughter’s already went up 17% just after 0’nazicare passed.
That was covered under selection of your death by the government, although with our mutts, I think sticking your head in their bowls is just a bit risky...
Woe is me.
