Employers Should Get to Choose What to Provider Workers

I was very relieved to see that Senator Mitch McConnell is standing up for the most abused people in the country today–employers–when he vowed to fight the President Obama compromise on the birth control/ insurance debate.

From a religious standpoint, McConnell is, of course, right. It’s a shame that the government thinks that people should be able to make their own choices about family planning–that’s half of what God does. He sits up there in Heaven and points out who should have a successful sexual outcome (meaning between a man and woman!!!!) and is blessed with a child and who doesn’t.

Man has no business making those types of decisions for themselves.

But that religious debate aside, it only makes sense that employers should decide what types of coverage they’re comfortable in providing to employees across the board–sort of like the chef at an all-you-can-eat Chinese restaurant. If a chef doesn’t like to provide Shrimp with Lobster Sauce, whether it’s because it’s too expensive to make or because he doesn’t like the flavor, then he doesn’t have to put it in the bar.

It’s the same with health care–the employee is the boss, meaning that he gets to make the decisions.

If he doesn’t want to provide contraceptive insurance, he shouldn’t have to. If he doesn’t want to provide coverage for diabetes insurance because it’s too expensive or because he, himself, doesn’t have diabetes, then he shouldn’t have to put it in the insurance package.

Let’s face it: American employees are spoiled brats who expect a free lunch when it comes to health insurance–and it’s the poor employers who are left with the tab of an all-you-can-use health insurance bar.

It’s time that we get these health care costs under control, and the most logical way is by providing less coverage to more people.
