Does talking about health care reforms make your head hurt or go above your head? Maybe one remedy is to get back to basics. A cool video from the Kaiser Family Foundation explains what exactly is going to happen to Main Street prior to and after 2014. And because its cartoon-based (who doesn't love cartoons?), it's a fun (and informative) clip to pass around to colleagues and family. Scroll to 2:50 for a description of what the Affordable Care Act really does and to 4:53 for an easy way to explain state health care exchanges.

Or if you're worried about watching 'toons at your desk, Kaiser also provides a pdf transcript of the changes.
