The ‘Freedom’ Foundation wants to get our union out of the way because they want you to pay more.
So what does the ‘Freedom’ Foundation have to say about our health insurance benefits?
The ‘Freedom’ Foundation wants state employees to pay MORE for our health insurance.
“We say it’s about time state worker health insurance premiums were on the table. The Freedom Foundation has long recommended that state workers pay a bigger share of their health insurance premiums as a way to save money… It’s not unreasonable to ask that public employees pay an increased share of health insurance premiums, especially given that taxpayers are subsidizing a majority of those costs.” Official Blog of the Freedom Foundation, August 17, 2010
The ‘Freedom’ Foundation thinks state employees should pay 20% for our healthcare premiums. The union has STOPPED the state from raising our premiums.
“If state workers had to pay only 20 percent of their health insurance premiums, the state could save $50 million over six months, which translates into $200 million in savings over the course of a biennium.” – http://archive.myfreedomfoundation.com/blog/liberty-live/detail/finally-state-employee-health-insurance-premium-costs-on-the-table.html
The ‘Freedom Foundation’ believes state employees are a burden to the taxpayer.
“The question for policymakers is whether taxpayers should be forced to continue to subsidize such a generous employee benefits package at the expense of taxpayers.”
- They think we have Cadillac health care benefits.
- They say it’s time to make sure public employee stop “pilfering the public purse.”
