It's not even close.

My health insurance is more than I spend on food and utilities combined. It's more than my transportation. It's more than I spend on entertainment, travel and pet care all combined. The ONLY thing in my monthly budget that costs more than it is my mortgage.


The scary thing about this is what you've not<?I> mentioned.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but, you have a pretty awesome diet. I know anything about your body type or your appetite control but you've never complained about health problems like diabetes, or arthritis, or bad cholesterol or any other maladies.

In other words, you have a clean life style and you're healthy and you have no children and even your health care costs are obscene.
