I’d been joking about this idea w/ friends for a while, but I’m beginning to think it warrants serious thought.  I’ll appoint a team to investigate and analyze what would happen if we passed a Federal law banning any employer from providing health insurance and health care coverage to their employees.   I wouldn’t be in the least surprised to discover that there’d be a fast change in insurance costs and in direct medical rates if the whole thing weren’t subsidized via corporate group insurance policies.   Yes, I still intend to push for proper single-payer coverage, but this could well be a big step in the right direction.
