    The reason employer based insurance worked in the past was that employees stayed long term and sometimes their whole career in one company. Thats no longer the case and insurance is not very portable as careers are changed often nowadays.

    That, along with the fact that insurance premiums to the company probably came in between the type-writer ribbon budget and the paper-cup allowance when this all started.

    Was scanning the conspiracy theorist corner of the internet this afternoon.

    THIS is why I am against current reforms:

    http://www.businessweek.com/magazine...3034820260.htm


    This is not reform that's being proposed; this is the ILLUSION of reform, and behind the magic curtain are government and business, scrambling to figure out how government can look good and therefore gain or maintain power, how legislators can empower themselves personally and politically, and how business can make more money.

    The left and right have both gone insane, the mainstream media--right and left--are screeching faux journalism about the nutcases on either side, and I'm getting my news from scanning the postings of conspiracy theorists, who are getting their "crazy" conspiracy ideas from... Business Week?

    I am glad I will be back at work in a week, or I would have the time to become genuinely enraged.

    Baaaaaah, baaaaaaaah....
