"my insurance"?  I haven't had insurance in over two years.  


I didn't think it was possible for me to think less of the BMMB... but now I do :cry:   He can jet off to Carolina for a football game but he can't give you health insurance? Bah!
You spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round

And that's through your employer's health plan? My god, that is OUTRAGEOUS. You're talking two adults and two kids, right? I pay approximately 1/10th of that figure for two adults (Kaiser).

Although the fact that Gaz' employer doesn't kick down any sort of health plan is even worse. I thought there were laws requiring such things. Is that just a California requirement?
Let's get right to it.
