US healthcare system, and labour mobility

Having hired people in Europe and the US, I can absolutely agree with Aaron Swartz in this post on how to promote startups. The healthcare issue in the US is a really big pain in the neck and I can’t help but feel if someone proposed the current system they’d be rightly described as totally nuts.

Of course we have to live with the current situation, and we do what we need to do to be a good corporate citizen and attract good people. But I can’t help but roll my eyes occasionally at the craziness of connecting employment and healthcare, and marvel at the continuing costs paid by everyone for what is (to an outsider’s eye) a pretty arbitrary connection.
