Open Thread

Without real reform, this is the future:

The 90-year-old non-profit health care charity [Commonwealth Institute] released an analysis of health care costs and forecasts that says employer-sponsored family plans will rise from an average cost of $12,298 in 2008 to $23,842 in 2020.

By contrast, the same coverage would have cost around $9,200 in 2003.

Bet you know what's going to happen with wage increases if this continues.
