Valid Point: Every Penny of Health Costs Comes from Workers

Here. The employer gets his health insurance funds from the productivity of the workers, as does government. There is no shared responsibility. The rise of health costs faster than wages and productivity increases cannot be sustained.

There is one thing the article does not mention. Allowing workers to control their health expenditures entirely, instead of tyrannical government officials. Workers would then have a vested interest in pushing costs down. The biggest savings in health costs comes from improved health.
