Don’t worry, “The Market” will take care of health care

08/13/2009

If the Beatles were right, then apparently the U.S. health insurance system is far from a best thing in life, because it is far from free.  Families USA has been tracking health care premiums against earnings state by state since 2000 and are beginning to roll out their results.  Guess which rose  faster?

Breakdown:
NV: 2.9x faster than earnings
FL: 3.7x faster than earnings
ND: 2.7x faster than earnings
CT: 7.4 x(!) faster than earnings
ME: 4.6x faster than earnings

Yup, let’s leave this sleeping dog lie. It’s fine.
