Howard Dean Loves McKinsey’s ‘Employer Will Drop Coverage’ Study


Via Julian Pecquet at The Hill, Howard Dean spoke out in favor of moving away from employer-sponsored coverage during a debate with Karl Rove and others today: “The biggest thing we can do for small businesses is get them out of the healthcare business,” Dean said. “If this bill does that, and all these small businesses dump their people into the exchanges, we will finally have broken the link between the employer and health insurance in this country … That’s going to help our business community more than anything else we’ve done in the past 25 years.”
