1* If the cost of providing health insurance for employees goes up, how likely is it that companies will pay lower salaries to make up the difference?
2* If the cost of providing health insurance for employees goes up, how likely is it that companies will hire fewer workers?
3* Who should make the decision about whether to pay higher health insurance premiums and lower salaries or lower premiums and higher salaries? The federal government, business owners, or should each individual worker make the decision for themselves?
4* What is more important--making sure that every employee has the best possible comprehensive health insurance coverage or making sure that every employee has the right to choose their own mix of health insurance coverage and salary?
5* If you could, would you be more likely to choose an expensive insurance policy that covered just about everything and receive a smaller paycheck? Or would you choose a less expensive plan that covered only major medical expenses and take home a bigger paycheck?
