    "$65/month for insurance is freakin' nothing."

    No kidding! I'm paying about $270 per pay check (2X per month) and think that isn't too bad compared to what I was paying about 4 years ago at a previous employer!

    The $270 is covering 4 of us.

    "I'm getting insured with MetLife, which is $65/mo."

    MetLife sells *health* insurance?

    4 years ago I was $160x2 for 4 and today it's shot up to $288x2 and we're taking the lowest offer. Our insurance guy said next year private insurance will double again....

    Then you've got this dumbshit, speaking yesterday morning on the morning circlejerk known as "Fox and Friends":

    Fox News Contributor's 'Sexist' Comments on Women's Health Care Spark Outrage
    "For years, women have had to pay higher health care premiums because insurance companies have used gender rating — a practice that, as of 2014, will be outlawed by the Affordable Care Act. The provision is one of the least controversial of the health care overhaul. But "Fox & Friends" still couldn't resist debating the issue Tuesday in a gender-baiting exchange (see video below) that's caused a controversy of its own.

    “We only have the prostate,” noted Fox News medical contributor Dr. David Samadi, who fanned the flames by arguing that women actually should pay more than men. "Women have the breasts, they have the ovaries, they have the uterus, they get checked in every part."

    It was just one of several surreal points raised by Samadi, who is a professor at Hofstra University and chairman of the Urology Department at New York's Lenox Hill Hospital.

    "Look, it's not bias, I'm not saying this as a man," he said. "They go through a lot of preventive screenings, they give birth, they have the whole mammogram, the Pap smear. Guys, we don't like to go to doctors, right? Seventy percent of health care decisions are made by women."
