Forbes magazine has a new article that points out that — despite what Republicans are saying about the health care reform bill killing jobs — that Obamacare is helping small businesses offer health care to their employees. This is great news.
I have started a number of small businesses, and I have long said that the problems that small businesses had in the past offering health insurance to their employees is huge problem to startups, and consequently an enormous drag on our economy, since it is small businesses that create most of our jobs. Not to mention that founders of small businesses often had to quit their regular jobs and give up their employee paid health insurance, either paying the formerly insanely high rates in the individual market, or going without.
It is great to see the business community lining up in support of health care reform.
