If you need more detail, consider that a low-wage worker is seeing maybe 20 cents - or less - go to taxes out of each dollar while a high-wage worker can easily see double that go to taxes. The tax break on medical-care insurance is simply more valuable to a higher-wage worker. Also, the higher-wage worker doesn't need flexibility with each dollar of earnings to the same extent as the low-wage worker.

I'm not the sharpest pencil in the box, so give me a minute to digest this: high wage workers are more deserving of employer paid or subsidized health insurance than low wage workers, because they make more money, while it's beneficial to low wage workers to be fobbed off on the government, where they are attacked by demagogues as leaches on society while the system they depend on for helping cover their medical bills is constantly under attack? Is that your position?
