    I don't have what anyone would call a higher income so I hope premiums don't go up. If they go up much higher I won't be able to afford health insurance at all. That would really suck.

    Why oh why can't people understand that when insurance companies have to provide UNLIMITED coverage they can't actuarily develop a premium?
