    I like the ring of that. The problem is where does it end? Should every high-risk career have a specialized health care system? What about the medium-high risk careers? Then low-risk careers.

    The next thing you know, everyone will want health care as a benefit for working and stuff. Ya know what they call that? Single Payer...

    Hey. That sounds like a pretty good idea, too.

      If you get health care as a benefit of employment, you're pretty much in what the Repugs call Obamacare.

      A single-payer system would take employers out of the equation.
