There's lots that can be done for small business owners. But then that would go against the interest of big business. And you know who our government sides with.
I certainly do. big businesses and eco-terrorists.

If Romney got elected he would be taking credit for the big improvement since he took over. And for repealing Obamacare, which he invented, conveniently forgetting that small businesses don't even have to offer plans under it.

What gives? I thought Obama was the Job Destroyer and that Obamacare was going to be the final nail in the coffin for small businesses?
It's at 25 down from 114 during Bush's last year.

Healthcare premiums rose just 4% last year-2nd time in a row. 10+% was common last decade. Add the control in that big cost with a growing economy and it is a good time to run , own, or manage a business.

health premiums didnt climb as much this year because the inflation rate wasnt that high.

There isnt a dam thing in Obamacare to reduce the cost of insurance, or care.

as well as no evidence it led to increased rates, either. 4% two years in a row..awesome..anyway you cut it that safeguards jobs. The 10% rate last decade if sustained would have us mired in EU style unemployment forever.

And what happened during Bush's last year? I don't think that fall was because we were sad to see him go.

The 10% will return when the economy returns, once again, NOTHING in Obamacare is preventing it.

I doubt it. Wellness measures have had a great affect in bending the cost curve..permanently.
