            They don't like that health insurance is entwine with employment. Removing the tax incentives will cause employers to start dropping health insurance as a fringe benefit, and move people to the robust open market options we have in this country.

              Well, remembering my history our Government prevented companies from paying people what they wanted to so they subsequently started offering benefits like Health Insurance to compensate. I've always thought having it tied to employment was stupid.

              Either way the proper way to do it is not by tax increase but by passing a law preventing employers from providing Health Insurance. Boom, done. This back door BS is exactly that, BS.

                I hope they do untie it to employment.

                Kaiser foundation refreshed their data on world health systems and outcomes. I read it all to prepare to teach a class on it Monday.
                Truly depressing. We spend way more money and get worse outcomes in everything. Everything . Such a stupid system.

                  that would also be political suicide. People that have employer provided health insurance don't want to lose it. The only way to get rid of employer provided heath plans is with a medicare for all solution.

                      Can't see doing this unless phased in over decades. Idea sounds simple. Raise Medicare tax on individuals to cover healthcare for all, then get back money from employer that they're currently contributing for your coverage. What could go wrong?

                      The biggest thing I see is that your employer simply decides to pocket the money it was spending on healthcare and distribute it back to shareholders instead of raising wages. I'd say absent a law specifically barring them from doing so, and I don't know how you'd be able to enforce that, this is exactly what 99.9% of them will end up doing.
