    “Automatically”? [u]No one[/u] believes that.

    I agree, strapping the employer with health insurance costs is not the proper way to do it and is a legacy of corporate decisions made to avoid discussions of nationalizing health insurance, but the time has come. That said, how would you propose private insurance companies cover most people with good insurance, easy to understand policies at affordable rates? Is there a country in the world that does this? Better yet, is there a country or countries that cover most or all of its population with good insurance with easy to understand policies at affordable rates? How is it done?

    There will be tradeoffs in any system but the present one we have is falling down on the job and it is the most expensive in the world.
