Survey Says Employers Will Continue to Offer Health Insurance

Opponents of health reform have said that it means the end of employer-based health insurance -- that once the Exchanges (marketplaces) are up and running in 2014, employers will drop their coverage and send employees into the Exchanges to fend for themselves.

Not so, says a new study by Mercer (a not exactly liberal consulting company). Only 6 percent of 2800 large employers who were polled said they will drop their health insurance. Small businesses will drive employees to the Exchanges in larger numbers -- about 20% -- but that has been anticipated by the law all along.

So once again, here's real proof that what's good about the status quo will remain intact. Jennifer
