Jonathan Cohn: Report was Garbage Science

Okay, so he didn't use the words "garbage science" -- that's my colorful phrase. But Jonathan Cohn explains why the McKinsey report that said that 30% of employers would drop insurance coverage for their employees was wrong and misleading. He explains that reliable studies have shown that the majority of employers will, indeed, maintain their health insurance plans.

And then he explains why that might not be the best solution for all of us. Single payer health care or a system like what exists in the Netherlands would be better. Maybe health reform will lead us to those kinds of solutions.

But the health reform law will NOT result in a mass exodus from employer-sponsored health insurance. Now you can rest easy. Jennifer
