American people deserve answer to NFL’s billion dollar healthcare question

American people deserve answer to NFL’s billion dollar healthcare question

There is a major question that the "American People" should be asking in the ongoing labor dispute between National Football League owners and the National Football League Players Association as the two sides head to a March 4th lockout. Are the players association's negotiators asking for a change in post career health benefits or are the reps asking for status quo? Status quo means that qualified former pros get health care for just five years following their last game. That is important for the "American People" to know because the "American People" are picking up the cost of taking care of broken down former pros that cannot get health insurance and instead are living on social security disability and Medicare.

The cost to the American taxpayer? Higher than a billion dollars.

Working conditions in the National Football League, whether Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and other like minded people and politicians care for it or not, is collectively bargained. Players can bargain for rights with owners like other workers in many other businesses. NFL owners need help with their businesses from the players for antitrust reasons as well and know it.
