My question about this plan, though, is this: just how much of the monetary savings to employers who will no longer be paying for health insurance plans on their employees' behalf will be passed on to the employees, in the form of increases wages or salary? Somehow I doubt it will be much. Add in the fact that individuals aren't going to be able to get the cheaper bulk rates for insurance that companies get, and...well, gee whiz, hand me the pen so I can sign right up.
UPDATE: In Reuters today a story with this chilling opening graf appears:
Half of all U.S. bankruptcies are caused by soaring medical bills and most people sent into debt by illness are middle-class workers with health insurance, researchers said on Wednesday.
Somehow I suspect that in a "Take care of getting and paying for your own insurance all by yourself" system, the proportion of bankruptcies caused by illnesses would go nowhere but up.
