That's actually not too bad. You'd pay 2 to 4 times that here depending on whether you have good or crappy insurance and how much your employer contributes if at all. The last time I was able to afford it, it cost me $400 per month, just for me - no wife or kids.

True but the cost of health care  is ridiculous here and some kind of health care reform is needed even if only to get the costs down.

If you look at this chart http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_care_compared#Cross-country_comparisons

Britain's annual health care costs are $2,992 per capita and the government pays 81.7% of that or $2,444 per capita

The US costs are $7,290 per capita and the government pays 45.4% or $3,309 per capita. Our government is actually paying more without universal coverage than countries that do have it.

Aside from the mandatory private insurance, it's not so different from ours. We have earmarked medicare taxes but the benefits only go to the elderly or the extremely poor. Most of "middle America" is left out.

Maybe it's different in:
Quote
A key feature of the Dutch system is that premiums may not be related to health status or age.
and
Quote
Private insurance companies must offer a core universal insurance package for the universal primary curative care, which includes the cost of all prescription medicines. They must do this at a fixed price for all.
and
Quote
It is illegal in The Netherlands for insurers to refuse an application for health insurance, to impose special conditions (e.g., exclusions, deductibles, co-payments, or refuse to fund doctor-ordered treatments).

Almost Exactly what Obamacare was/is about.

Np m8. I'm quite enjoying it


Anyway, I re-installed the Pardus 2011, only this time the 32bit version, my firefox for windows that works in wine is flawless...just cannot wait until the 64bit version gets wine.
