  •  The federal employee's salary (0+ / 0-)

    is FAR less than private industry. If federal employees (including elected ones) had to go into the individual health insurance market, the salaries of these employees would have to increase to cover it. The taxpayers would in effect be paying the same amount. Benefits are part of salary, and the federal employees salary is lower specifically because it includes health insurance.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that for federal employees, healthcare is salary.
