Obamacare Check-up: Deadline Approaches, Landrieu's Offensive

LA Budget Project: Obamacare Won't Hurt Worker Benefits
Recently, two policy groups essentially rebutted one of the largest talking points coming from opponents of Obamacare: employer-based insurance will decrease for Americans as the new Affordable Care Act reforms take hold.
