Soooo, another person who didn't READ my initial post.
Yeah dude, I read your post. You simply added "relative to the world" to the statement that the OP made. His statement didn't make a comparison to the rest of the world.
I said, one doesn't need to tons of money to have good insurance. I DIDN'T SAY insurance in the U.S. was cheap. Nor did I say insurance in the U.S. was cheap compared to the rest of the world, but I wasn't making that claim. I also get the not all U.S. employers are offering plans that would be considered cheap, but I wasn't making that claim either.
Would I like insurance to cheaper? Of course I would, but that's not going to change until measures are taken to reduce the cost of health care. Until then, I find a plan that works for me and my family......which I have.
In fact there hasn't been a time when I've been dissatisfied with my insurance with any of my past employers. I'm not rich, I don't have tons of money........I'm pretty sure most of you make more money than I do................but I have insurance that I'm very pleased with.
Maybe I'm the ONLY guy here who is happy with their insurance and has no complaints with service. Maybe I've been lucky, maybe I'm smart, or maybe it's because I live in one of the most economically sound states in the US. I don't know, but there's nothing I can do about that.
The OP made a general statement, I answered back with another general statement. I really don't see what is so confusing about that.
I know A LOT of other people who would say the same thing, so it isn't just me.
Is it so hard to believe that someone living in the U.S., who doesn't have tons of money, can actually have insurance they are pleased with?
