DECOUPLING OF HEALTHCARE FROM EMPLOYMENT

First step: Immediate 5% pay raise, additional 5% pay raise in year two and three.

This 5% pay raise works this way. 

Simple law passed by Congress. The federal government now directs your employer to pay you that 5% of wages to YOU, the wage earner, instead of using it to subsidizes some insurance company premium. This revenue neutral adjustment to tax code makes every working American wealthier.


For many years now, at the behest of the Democrat party, the federal government has been indirectly subsidizing private insurance companies at the expense of every worker in America's wages. The trade-off began many years ago, soon after WWII. America is paying the price now in lost wages by the bargain the Democrat party made to win the presidential election of 1948.

How? Most people aren't aware of this daily reality of their paycheck, but about 30% of all employees wages are removed from each workers pay each pay period and allocated to pay some private insurance corporation. These wages belong in workers' pocket, NOT in some insurance conglomerates profit ledger. The federal government forces businesses to lower your pay by law and simultaneously give our country's single largest tax break to subsidize inflating insurance company premiums.
