By your theory of "socialism" and the employer/employee relationship, my employer pays for my coffee at home along with my dog's food. My employer pays for my car registration and insurance along with my toothpaste. Your theory also includes the idea that if you buy any of the products my employer puts in the marketplace, then you pay for my toilet paper. Thank you.


The reason the employer pays for that guys health insurance is that it is part of his compensation. It's not charity. The guy works there for the cash and benefits. One such benefit is health insurance. Employers frequently pay for insurance for a group of employee because its more cost effective. Another advantage for the employer is that he/she/it controls that benefit and it's an incentive for the employee not to leave.

I'll never forget one poster here who argued with me saying I pay for my own! When in
fact his employer paid the most of it. When your employer pays for it then the goods
and services they sell cost more to compensate for it. Isn't that a form of socialism? lol

We are being made to pay for your benefits? Why not have the Insured pay?

Perhaps people want the freedom to stick someone else with the bill!

Trump does that a lot. He still owes a bunch of cities up into the millions for his political rallies.

Yeah we need the right to screw people over and make them pay for our stuff, so we don't have to.
