the cost of health insurance rose about 25%. Finally, the health insurance coverage is worse than it was last year when we paid less for it, and got better benefits.You need to plan for this, and it will continue. I buy on the private market, and mine has gone up 25%-40% every year since 2003 - when I first started buying it. Every single year. In 2007 it went up 40%. It's always been my biggest expense after housing. I build it into my budget.And that's independent of any issue of politics. This is a cost that will rise well above the rate of inflation and needs to be budgeted for.
