37. Make MediCare a "buy-in" program for any individual. untie health care from employment and watch...
Edited on Fri Sep-23-11 03:17 PM by stlsaxman
the job market sky-rocket! If employers didn't need to offer "insurance" in a job package, and job-seekers didn't hold out for coverage- they'd take any reasonable wage.

Hopefully you can put it more succinctly than i did just now but....

Thanks for asking for ideas, brooklynite! give Joe a big hug for me/us!

(this is a BFD!)

On Edit- nevermind.... (just read your post again) oh, well- have fun!
