PPACA Interactive Timeline

I like this timeline from Employee Benefit News.  I like it because it is a collapsed list.  You simply click on a subject within the timeline that interests you or might affect you to see a brief description, then you can continue to learn more.  I think this is less overwhelming than other time lines.
