The health care answer is not ‘Obamacare’, it is employers

SHARE The health care answer is not ‘Obamacare’, it is employers

Obamacare is much in the news lately, but I do not feel it is the answer to the medical question. The answer, I feel, is employers.

My wife recently died after a year long battle with cancer. Her employer Stampin' Up had coverage through Select Health, and between the both of them they made a very difficult year almost hassle free. The personal attention and caring was well above what we expected. If we had coverage through a government mandated program, swamped with cases and run by overloaded and under caring bureaucrats, it would have been a year full of red tape and extreme hassles.

The answer is not to force a program on everyone, but to teach companies that if you treat your employees with fairness you will received benefits 10 fold.

Let's not trade personal service for a number on a balance sheet.
