I agree employers shouldn't provide health insurance. Our government should.

As for your bet about those opposing coverage being 75% men.

Claims that the whole reiigious debate during the constitutional convention was about no preference over Christian denominations is nonsense. Heck, Jefferson had a Quran he read and kept in his library.

That is right, if it is against their religion, they should not be forced to pay for it.

Christian Scientists don't believe in medical interventions. They believe in the power of prayer to cure the spirit and the body. But employees of their publication, the Christian Science Monitor, do have access to a standard health care plan since not all of them are observant Christian Scientists.

Typically, employers pay at least part, if not all, of the premium for health insurance.

Then again, maybe it wouldn't be so expensive if we actually had health "insurance" instead of the pre-paid medical we have now.

It's all about control,everyone knows when you work you get benefits and those who don't want benefits from thier employer should opt out,hey im sorry but if you are blessed enough to not have to use insurance for any medical reason whatsoever great but the rest of the world does and if im giving my life and time to a company im getting benefits and coverage.
