Small Business still on the outside of health reform 1 October, 2009Posted by David Anderson in Healthcare, Jobs.
The Baucus draft is better but not even close to helping small business. It discourages wage increases for American workers and discourages business hiring. It raises the cost of health insurance. It does give some tax credits to help businesses purchase coverage and provide coops for businesses with fewer than 100 employees. It seems to me that we should start over. Singapore has its 50th anniversary of the best health care in the world this week. It is market based and founded in medisave accounts.
