Wow, no insurance or anything? You are either a millionaire or you are toeing a very fine line there if you get sick/hurt!
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasury.
A subsidy from your work place is still part of your compensation package. It's part of your salary that's not cash similar to how you may look at a company cell phone, laptop etc where you were allowed to use it for both personal and business use.
I do not, have not, and will not work for AT&T/Comcast/Verizon/Charter or similar sized company.
