1. If a person's share of employer based care
is too expensive - then they can absolutely go to the exchange and use the subsidy and find something affordable.

They are not requiring business to pay for whatever plan the employee chooses, that's what they aren't mandating. The employer will still have the power of numbers to negotiate premiums and will still be responsible to help pay for it.

It isn't a question of not allowing working individuals to join the public option; it's a question of not mandating employers to add the expense of managing a different plan for every employee and having their own premium rates go up as they lose employees out of their plan.
