That is what I’m figuring. Family of four coverage, bank the savings IF we lose it from employer, save the premiums, less the fine and in five short years we’d be 50K to the good, ten years 100K and so on. Not counting perhaps gains on investment of said savings . . . we’re going on 20% earnings this year so far . . . not to say we’ll end the year @ 20%. The libs get really mad when you tell them you won’t cooperate and play their little utopia game and you’ll pay the fine instead . . . which is what they get with an affirmative action pretender and his gang of Pelosi and Dirty Harry.

Unfortunately, Qwackertoo, what you have described is akin to the "tragedy of the commons." If most people think and act like you, there will be no affordable insurance when you DO decide to go get it after you have contracted an expensive disease or have a premie or experience another catastrophic risk. It's called an actuarial death spiral.

Rates will shoot higher, faster, as more and more "qwackertoos" drop out to avoid paying now-outrageous prices, banking their "savings" and hoping that enough other idiots will actually buy insurance that don't need it right at that moment so there will be something left when the "smart ones" decide to tap into it.

Glad it's only you that would drop out of the risk pool. Meanwhile, my employer and I will keep buying insurance so it still exists when you need it. Regards.
