I am very lucky. I work hard. 60 hours per week. My small business supplies health insurance for all employees. Yes, our rates have about doubled in 4 years. I am not at all surprised.

As of January, 2016, our Healthcare provider has notified us that our rates will more than double. They increased by almost 20% from 2013 to 2014. There is no logic in not having every single American citizen pay on some level for care they receive, barring the elderly and disabled.
