    The canard that is spread by some kossacks that the The Affordable Care Act is just an insurance giveaway is one of them.

    I mean can people gloss over this fact (from Ced's diary):

    The NEJM article references a Rand study, which the L.A. Times describes thusly:

    Overall, they estimate that the proportion of U.S. workers who will have access to health insurance through their jobs will jump from 84.6% to 94.6%. That works out to 13.6 million additional workers having the option to buy affordable health plans.

    Most of that bump is likely to come from smaller businesses with 50 or fewer employees.

    94.6%...with more choices through the exchanges and more people qualifying for Medicaid!!!

    That, plus the consumer protections and new health care clinics, makes this law good for consumers and small businesses.
