    employees that are sort of left hanging.  Below that, you can get the tax credits to provide coverage. Above 50, the law assumes you're large enough to be able to negotiate better group rates. For the 26-50 employee organizations, it'll be the exchanges for individual employees.

    •  I'm interested in the 26 - 99 range (1+ / 0-)

      I think this is the area where I get beat up on by conservatives.

      For businesses with fewer than 100 employees, there was just a 43% participation rate in health care plans (BLS 2006 figures - ).  I believe that is just the participation rate for employers that offered plans.

      We need constructive solutions for businesses that fall into this group.  For employers under 50, to help them make the right choices when they are ready to expand.  For those over 50+, to help them choose benefits over penalties.

      Saying that the CEO of Papa Johns is a schmuck will only get us so far.
