1* How would you rate the  US Health care system…excellent, good, fair or poor?

 

2* Most working age Americans have health insurance provided by their employer. Is this a good system for providing health insurance?

 

3* Suppose a worker wants a different health insurance plan than the one provided by his employer. If it didn’t cost the employer any extra money, should the worker be allowed to pick his own insurance plan?

 

4* Okay, suppose a company provides health insurance for a worker and his family that costs $1,000 a month. Suppose the worker switched to other coverage that cost only $800 per month. Who should get the $200 per month savings--the company or the worker?

 

5* If consumers could choose their own insurance plan and insurance companies had to compete for their business, would that decrease the cost of health insurance or increase the cost of health insurance?
