ChoicePlus: A 33-Gallon Trash Bag and a Loaded Gun

VIEW ALL: Health Insurance

41% of working adults earning up to $40,000 a year were uninsured for at least part of last year according to a survey of 4,350 people conducted by a New York research group. That’s up from 28% the year before. The discovery that just under half of the middle class has slipped into the flaming-oil-barrel-and-a-shopping-cart column is “worrisome” according to researchers.

As health insurance costs increase individuals are opting for higher deductibles and catastrophic coverage only. My insurance company deductible is so high that the plan comes with the larger Town of Gorham trash bag and a gun with a single bullet in the chamber.
