I feel highly discriminated against! I've been purchasing my own health
insurance for more than 10 years now and every year I feel great
resentment building when I remember that a business can write off this
expense. But for me it's after-tax-dollars all the way. :(

And then they bitch about how many don't have health insurance.

Gee. I wonder why!

Plus, my insurance, the cheapest I could find anywhere here, pays for much
more than I am interested in.
