Exclusions are going to be your primary tool.  You can use them to inflict ICS (Invisible Candidate Syndrome) on an unsuspecting newbie.

Starting a Business Is a Huge Pain

By Matthew Yglesias - Slate.com

I’ve been to three offices, filed five forms, spent $200, lost a day of work—and I’m not even close to getting the simple license I need.

By John Berlau - Competitive Enterprise Institute

“If you like your life, home, and auto insurance, you can keep them.”

But as syndicated columnist Jay Ambrose points out, “if the Dodd-Frank regulatory law does what is now plotted, though he will still share responsibility for the insurance provision that, along with others, could bloody lots of noses.”
