"What they've done though in regulatory rule-making, is essentially narrow the definition of what can be considered a grandfathered plan so narrowly that virtually no employer will be able to qualify for it. . . . Employers are coming to the realization that they have lost complete control over their job-based plans. . . . And the plans that existed previously are going to vanish."
—James C. Capretta
