People in Great Britain find it literally unfathomable how much health care can cost in the United States. $250 for an inhaler? The young woman looks aghast. “Man, so if you’re poor, you’re dead,” she says. The same exasperation recurs again and again in this video from JOE, an online news site for young millennials in the UK and Ireland. $600 for an EpiPen? Unimaginable. $10,000 to give birth to your baby?! For a baby?!? $40 to have skin-to-skin contact with your newborn baby after you do?!?!? These Brits literally cannot believe how much US health care costs My wife and I are both 63, retired, and in good health. We get at $230 discount on our insurance because she was a former county employee. We pay $1,207 a month for a high deductible plan that essentially doesn't kick in until our out of pocket expense hits $9K. That is crazy. The country needs a public option to keep healthcare costs inflation down.
