Another communique from below the 49th.


If you want to cover your family, it will cost you 484.62 a month. And that is if you are a full time employee. Part time employees will have to pay 709.84 a month.... For me, my coverage will cost 114.46 per month. And that is just health, not dental.... This is the absolute worst that I've seen it increase. We have gone from a national average of premium increases at around 6 percent per year in the late 90's to now DOUBLE that under Bush.

"Our health insurance premiums went up 12% for 05. If you want to cover your family, it will cost you 484.62 a month. And that is if you are a full time employee. Part time employees will have to pay 709.84 a month. For health insurance. And that's an HMO. A LOCAL HMO. For me, my coverage will cost 114.46 per month. And that is just health, not dental. And I work for a hospital. This is the absolute worst that I've seen it increase. We have gone from a national average of premium increases at around 6 percent per year in the late 90's to now DOUBLE that under Bush. 12 percent. 12 percent!"
