Freep this poll!

Boston Business Journal is hosting an online poll asking whether businesses should have to "pay or play" with respect to health care - that is, whether they should either have to provide health care coverage for their employees or pay into a state fund for affordable health care.  (Actually, they get the question wrong by just asking "should businesses be required to offer health insurance," but by reading the setup to the question you can tell that they're talking about pay or play.)

The poll is here.  Go vote yes.

I entered the following comment after voting "YES" in the poll (our group is a nonprofit business in the Commonwealth):

What should be instituted is a payroll tax paid to a state-administered insurance fund, say 8%-10% or so, because this will help our health insurance costs become more stable and predictable which is good for our bottom line. Plus, it is the right thing to do.
