It would only take a tax increase of 3-4 percentage points to exceed my total annual OOP healthcare expensese, including what my employer chips in on my premiums. God knows it will be more than 4 points.

Take the UK's NHS for example.

https://www.gov.uk/national-insurance-rates-letters

Employees pay 12% on the first 60k(usd) and 2% on the rest.
Employers pay 13.8% on every dollar.

Using those rates, the total expense for me and my employer for premiums alone, would exceed my total annual average OOP costs for healthcare by 445%.

My employer sure as hell isnt going to eat that 13.8% either. I'd see a pay cut, guaranteed.

So yeah, no. I can do 7th grade math, so I know when I am being @#$%ed.
