Who's responsibility is healthcare?
The issue of health care costs goes far beyond county benefits, and to who should be responsible for the expense of health care in the first place.
I've always found it surprising that people tend to complain that workers should have less health care benefits, rather than complaining about those who work and don't have any.
There are strong arguments for moving away from employer paid health care, and our country has slowly moved in that direction over the last ten years.
The problem arises in that no suitable alternative has been created in its place. The end result being that the cost of health care is increasingly being born by workers, effectively limiting the amount of money they have left to contribute to the economy.
