Calling It Quits: A Solution to the Healthcare Crisis
CLICK TO READ: TomPaine.com - Calling It Quits by Robert Reich
Robert B. Reich is the Maurice B. Hexter Professor of Social and Economic Policy at Brandeis University, and was the secretary of labor under former President Bill Clinton.
Robert Reich is on to something. In the article above, he makes an excellent case for the following as a way to solve the nation's healthcare crisis:
"...It’s time for the nation to wise up. Instead of condemning companies for looking for ways to cut their health bills, we ought to be instructing companies to stop providing health benefits altogether. Eliminate the current $126 billion tax subsidy. Use the money instead as a down payment on a universal and affordable system of health insurance—available to everyone regardless of how much they earn, where they work, or even whether they have a job."
