    I am very interested in this. But I don’t understand it I must admit.
    Here, in the u.k. we pay a percentage out of our wages (taxes) some of that amount goes towards the N.H.S. I think this is a very fair way of doing it.
    Could you tell me how much it costs to have health insurance in the U.S.A?
