Right, and the best approach would be for employees to get no health insurance at all, I'm sure they would rather have the cost of that benefit paid out in salary instead and be left entirely on their own for medical expenses. Seriously, I know the US approach to paying for healthcare has its problems, but that has to be the most bizarre conclusion I've ever seen on the topic. You think that having people mortgage their future and simply giving them more cash, which they don't ultimately enjoy other than to pay loans at distressed interest rates, is a greater benefit to them than providing the best insurance coverage we can offer?
