A grass-roots group of Madison-area residents wants the city to require employers to provide health insurance through a mandated fee, but the city attorney says the city can't impose such a payroll tax on businesses.
The group, Wisconsin Health Care for All, has proposed a universal health insurance plan called "Provide or Pay." It would force employers to make insurance available to all workers or contribute roughly 5 percent to 10 percent of payroll into a community health plan.
Will someone please tell me why it is the responsibility of government, or business, to provide health insurance for everyone???
