I am not retired and am trying to get there as quickly as possible (being aggressive, but, hopefully not aggressively stupid).

I think the health care issue is worth about $40K per year in our budget as my wife is permanently disabled, but not classified as so.

If she were healthy, it would be a conversation about which country do we want to visit this month instead of which hospital is our followup at this month.

I believe tax rates are going to ratchet up very soon, now. This will be a consideration (maybe that replaces health care? - who knows?)

I'm almost 42. My wife is the same. We have saved very aggressively off of my relatively great career and 4 years of her working.

Those savings continue to blossom, but, that medical insurance ????.

23 years is a long time to be wrong...
