Thanks for the feedback, yes, I was trying to also consider how the whole govt subsized healthcare package could also factor into this decision, looks like I can afford to wait that one out awhile, pun intended - lol.

I woke up in the middle of the night last night - with this whole thought process streaming in my head - and mind you, I consider myself a political independent:

In the early 80s, they took out their carving knives:

First, they came after the air traffic controllers union, which led
to an overall decline in unionization,
Next, they came after skilled and semi-skilled labor,
Then, they came after professional middle management & unskilled labor (giant sucking sound)
Then, they came after pensions & subsidized healthcare and similar employee benefits
Meanwhile, the cost of education and healthcare soared
Now, they are coming after public sector employees
Next, they will dismantle all social saftey nets.

All gains of the 20th century in America will be wiped out.

The rising tide kept the yachts afloat, but all the other boats have run aground.
