Your posts (in this thread and others) make it obvious that your perspective is in the clouds, while many of the rest of us are living in the real world.
The consensus of the first few pages of this thread seemed to be that if your health care coverage was somehow lacking it was your own fault for not working hard enough. That's why I figured you just aren't working hard enough.
I've worked jobs that paid little to nothing towards health care. One place I swear was trying to make a profit off selling health insurance the price was so high. I've worked places that offered no health insurance at all, that I had a wife and 2 young kids then. I paid for health insurance for the kids on my own. I know what it's like to have no health care, I know whats it's like to have high price health care that seems to cover very little.
That is why I support a program that allows people to buy standardized health insurance through an exchange like has been set up. I was going to say "at reasonable prices" but I'm not sure as I only have anecdotal evidence to go from.
