Re: How much do you pay for private insurance?

I think the deductible should be tax deductible for private insurance because if you have company insurance and add that back in to what you make, many people make much more, they just don't realize it. It is ridiculous how much the middle class is taxed after you make about $50,000. We used to make less and when you added in our benefits, we did better. Not much of an incentive to make more.
YES that is us....Dh tok a better paying job, which caused us to hae to get private insurance ($1200 a month) and also some other employment insurance, which jumped us to the next tax bracket...so we have more $$$ coming out....basically when you do the math the "better paying job" got us less take home pay Makes him want to go back to the lower income job so we can acctually keep the money he makse vs sending off to spent where we have very little control over. It really sucks to see you paycheck/income LITERALLY half of what you actually "make".
