So the unions have finally figured out that the government-created system of employer-based insurance has a fatal flaw:
"Approximately three-fourths of American workers are concerned with losing their health insurance if they change jobs, according to a survey released by the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO)."
How do you increase portability? Level the tax code to include equal tax treatment for individual plans that aren’t tied to employment. This would effectively get companies out of the insurance business if people sought out individual policies. But so what? This WWII model has got to go (hey, ho.)
