The collateral damage of Obamacare repeal

Conservatives want to wipe out Obamacare's insurance regulations to make health coverage cheaper — but if they do, it could affect far more than the people who buy health insurance on their own. In a new analysis provided to Axios, the Century Foundation finds that if Republicans turn those regulations over to the states, 91 million Americans in "self-insured" employer plans would be hit too — and they'd probably have no way to get them restored.
