How Does Health Care Reform Affect Your Small Business?

  • Sharebar

After more than a year of crawling its way through Congress, the health care reform legislation made its way to President Obama’s desk to become the law of the land.

This bill has had more drama surrounding it than any I can recall in my lifetime.  It depends on which side of the fence you were on but this bill was either the miraculous cardiac kid surviving multiple near death experiences, or it was the monster in a horror film that just when you thought was dead would suddenly jump up and start chasing you again.  It’s certainly been a polarizing issue.

As entrepreneurs, it doesn’t matter much if we love or hate this legislation.  We are left to deal with the changes it makes to our businesses.

That’s the topic of this month’s new poll on the right-hand side of this blog.  Won’t you please take a moment and cast your vote on how this health care reform legislation will impact your small business?

Update: The poll feature has been removed from the sidebar of this website, but here are the results of the poll.

Health insurance should have nothing to do with employment. It's nonsensical. If you get REALLY sick, you can't work and you will likely lose your job. AND YOUR INSURANCE.

I’m not a fan of the government forcing small businesses to provide health insurance for their employees. Having said that, I am a big fan of employers providing rich benefit plans to their employees. Portability and affordability in the situation you describe is a real concern that needs to be addressed, but I think forcing employees to fend for themselves would lead to disastrous results.
