    corporations are 100% out of the health plan business.

    This isn't a FLAW of ACA, or a Republican talking point, but a logical and welcome consequence of Obamacare.

    The answer to Republicans whining about a faster migration from employer-sponsored group plans is: You say it like it's bad for business and America.

    It's just not. It's emancipation from having to work a horrid job because health care.

    I'm not pitching this effectively. I'm not getting through.

      One thing I have repeatedly said in discussions with folks about ACA is that it may well be the single biggest innovation catalyst this country has seen in a long time, in that people no longer will be tied to crap jobs just to maintain health insurance, but will be much freer to become entrepreneurs.

        No one wants to hear that Obamacare helps companies, neither Dem nor Pub.

        It doesn't fit either side's messaging that Democrats just did the private sector an incredible solid.

        Third Wayers do their absolute best to NOT draw attention to their boardroom fanlove. "Pro Business, Bishes!" Not gonna happen.

        And the progressive caucus is absolutely NOT going to run on a It Helps The Man platform, not even an inadvertent one.

        Thus, diary floppage. That's my post mortem here...
