What are your thoughts? Even if this isn't homework (although I have a strong suspicion it is), you should begin the conversation.

I like being a nurse because my employer gives me insurance.

Weeeelllllll, your employer doesn't really "give" you insurance -- your insurance is paid for out of your earnings that you never see because your employer withholds them to pay for the insurance. :)

My husband's employer doesn't deduct anything for our insurance & we pay almost nothing for doctor visits & $0 for meds. The benefits of being in the Teamsters Union.

This is where I am. Congress can't agree on a plan, and until they do it is difficult to have an opinion on it. Generally speaking, we pay more for health care than any nation on earth, and our outcomes are middle of the pack. In my opinion, there should be a national system of some kind. Every other industrialized nation has one. In no other country is health insurance tied to employment, or is it allowed to exclude certain conditions.

Even if nothing shows up on your paycheck stub, the insurance is still part of your compensation; money that you earned but never see because it's being taken off the top and given to the insurance company. Employers don't "give" anyone anything.
