    Some businesses are intrinsically more dangerous  than others and there needs to be something, besides micromanaged regulations, that induce them to keep up with worker safety.

    Mining companies should contribute more towards worker  health care than say a flower shop. Creating single payer taxation models that reflect intrinsic worker hazards would be a logistical and political nightmare.

    •  I like torts... (0+ / 0-)

      ...and the threat of torts as a way to keep dangerous businesses in line. If workers get injured, they get payoffs. Companies must then keep injury rates low, or raise wages to get guys to take dangerous work.
