I would like to point out that the recent controversy over employers' religious views and employees' health coverage would never have happened if our country had a universal coverage, single-payer health care system.

That's because, under single-payer, employers would no longer have to have any involvement in their employees' health insurance.

An employer's religious affiliation or moral beliefs would be a non-issue.

Under single-payer, everyone would have the same health coverage, regardless of whom they worked for.

And under single-payer, losing one's job would no longer mean losing one's health insurance.

Something to think about.
