Well, of course you always have to take it to the next level. So now private businessmen are suing the government because they don’t want to provide health insurance to their employees if it has no co-pay or deductible for birth control pills. Frank R. O’Brien and O’Brien Industrial Holdings are leading the charge.
Here’s an idea for Frank and his Christy family of companies: single-payer universal health care.
I don’t want Frank to have to worry about his employees using birth control. I also don’t want Frank’s employees to have to put up with having their health decisions influenced by Frank’s religious beliefs. Why are employers expected to provide health insurance anyway? That’s a really stupid system.
So, let’s give both Frank and his employees a break. Frank won’t have to pay a dime for his workers’ health care and his workers can go back to not giving a damn about their boss’s religious beliefs.
Medicare for all, baby!! Even a guy who ‘specializes in shotcreting refractory materials in coal fired power generating stations’ can get behind that idea, right?
