Howard Dean: Small businesses to 'dump' employees onto exchanges

Washington (CNN) - Howard Dean, a former governor and physician and a proponent of the federal health care law, acknowledged Sunday that some businesses will inevitably drop health insurance coverage for their employees.

"Small businesses are going to dump their employees into the exchange. I think that's a good thing," the former Democratic presidential candidate from Vermont said on CNN's "State of the Union." "To separate employment from health insurance, that's something conservatives have wanted to do for a long time until recently, and I think that's going to happen as a result of this bill."

Howard Dean blasts Ted Cruz

(CNN) - Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean on Thursday described Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and others who support threatening a government shutdown in order to defund Obamacare as "irresponsible" and "petty, radical-right people."

"We can do better this, and I think the American voters are going to throw these people out," he said on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper." "If they keep doing this, the impossible may become possible. We could take back the House in 2014."

The former presidential candidate will speak Wednesday at the Iowa Federation of Labor convention, taking him back to the same state where he finished third in the 2004 Iowa caucuses and made his infamous "Dean Scream."

On the left, Howard Dean open to presidential bid

San Jose, California (CNN) - Howard Dean, the former Vermont governor who electrified anti-war liberals during the 2004 presidential race, said Thursday he would consider another run for the White House – a statement that will surely be met with mixed reaction in the Democratic Party.

Dean, whose underdog presidential campaign officially launched 10 years ago this weekend, said he has "mixed feelings" about running for office again but added he would consider another bid for the Democratic presidential nomination if he doesn't think the other candidates are adequately addressing progressive issues that are dear to his heart.
