Stunning News: Women Pay More for Health Insurance
I'm completely mystified. How could this possibly
Checking the "female" box when buying health insurance is likely to cost extra — perhaps up to 50 percent more than a man would pay for the same coverage.
Gender-rating — or what some term as flat-out sexual discrimination — is linked to the simple fact that women, particularly those under age 50 or so, go to the doctor more often than men.
So they're more expensive to insure? The horror. Predictably, some very stupid liberals
are up in arms about this:
Isn't that great? Because women are the ones who bear the physical burden of gestation and the responsibility that entails, they are paying up to 50% more in premiums. When Jon Kyl whined about not wanting to pay for maternity benefits, he was defending that status quo.
Of course, women also pay less for life insurance (because they live longer) and less for auto insurance. Why do I suspect this "discrimination" will not be remedied by ObamaCare?
