Study: Obamacare Costs Are Crippling Business

If the hope is for real, sustained recovery, the still-healing U.S. economy can't afford the Affordable Care Act, according to a new analysis.

The costs imposed by the ACA, better known as Obamacare, on small business will hurt hiring, employee compensation, and business growth, according to the report by National Center for Policy Analysis Senior Fellow Devon Herrick.

The NCPA is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy research organization based in Dallas.

"The Affordable Care Act contains sweeping changes to the employer-sponsored health insurance market," Herrick said. "Though it was promoted as a way to lessen the problems small businesses experience in providing health coverage, many business owners report that the law is increasing their burdens."

Of course, as we have been saying, it is not about health care it is about destroying the economy of the nation. Maybe more of us will realize that but unfortunately, too late.

Locally, we can oust James Mathias. He will bankrupt us under the guise of saving the environment. Do your homework. Wind Energy is not economically sustainable and it ruins the local environment and wildlife.
