No. of Recommendations: 2 in this case means everyone pays, but since it comes out of their pay in the form of taxes, everyone can delude themselves into thinking the services are free.

I think what he's getting at is that someone else (taxpayers) is footing the bill for OP's insurance, yet he's upset that it isn't as convenient as plans he would have to pay for himself and has to deal with more bureaucracy.

I've pretty much not cared for many of SubPrimate's posts or tone, but on this particular one, I thought the same thing & agree (assuming my perceived meaning of his post is correct). Especially after the OP's post on "how he LBYM" on that board. This thread is what I thought of immediately when I read that one. Having the state pay for your health insurance is a LBYM tip he omitted.
