Drum comments on Jonathan Gruber's article regarding Americans afraid to leave their jobs because of the healthcare plans:

[Associate Professor of Economics Alison] Wellington estimates that universal health care would...likely increase the share of workers who are self-employed (currently about 10 percent of the workforce) by another 2 percent or more. A system that provides universal access to health insurance coverage, then, is far more likely to promote entrepreneurship than one in which would-be innovators remain tied to corporate cubicles for fear of losing their family’s access to affordable health care.
