Is the increase in interest rates really the bad boy?

I see blog after blog of the doom and gloom of higher interest rates.

Is it really that bad or am I missing something.

I understand that some payments will go up  by 40-50 and even $60 or more.

But, how many people will drop out because of those amounts?

I had a potential client that told me they had to wait and see how much his employer was going to raise up his health insurance.

Am I the only one that has had so many people drop or postpone a sale?

My personal Health ins. is going fro.m $498 to $763 a month. 

That is almost $270 increase for a month.

We all need to raise our hackles about this.  Not only is this affecting our home sales, but all sorts of sales.  Shopping for those extras we just want and not need will be one.  Not going out to eat as often is another possible.

Is there anyone who has seen a decrease in their areas Health premiums?  I would like to hear about it.

 

 

My deductible is just short of $7,000. My out of pocket for health care before the ins. kicks in (Except for yearly physicals) Is about $13,000.  Next year it will be apx $16,000+.

How long can our Nation survive this disaster?

 

Cut rate procedures will start becoming the norm.
