 Ted Cruz is taking a stroll down health insurance memory lane. He’s traveling back to the 1960s, when most employers, if they offered health insurance at all to their employees, usually served up a very basic package that would be called catastrophic coverage today. Others might help employees purchase insurance, perhaps facilitating a group discount. But the idea of an employer paying for comprehensive employee coverage was unheard of in all but a few workplaces.
