UPS decided to force the spouses of non-Union employees to get coverage from their own employers if offered. They said it would affect about 15,000 employees.
I'm not really pushing this as a good or bad idea, and I'm not even sure if people would take sides on the issue along traditional party lines. It seems like Republicans love cutting government spending, but they're not so big on doing so at the expense of corporations.
Basically, if the State adopted the UPS model the scenario would work like this: If your wife works for the State and you work for Promega, the State would kick you off their coverage and tell you to get your coverage from Promega, potentially saving taxpayers a great deal of money.
