  •  I feel I should point out that some jobs (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    are more hazardous than others, and employers have a lot of control over how safe or dangerous some jobs are, so using a flat medicare fee does two things:

    1)  Companies with safer jobs subsidize those with more dangerous jobs.
    2)  There's less incentive for companies to clean up their act (Ideally, there should be strong federal regulations targeting unsafe workplaces, but in practice...).

    I'm not actually disagreeing with you, by the way, just pointing out two potential problems.
