How many small businesses will go out of business if republican succeed in increasing health insurance rates?

Health insurance is one of the biggest costs for small business that choose to support their employees. We have seen 200% grown in premium costs over the last 6 years. It looks likely that republicans will succeed in squashing any significant reform in the health care bill. How many small businesses will go out of business as a result?

Or will they simply drop employee matching leaving the entire cost up to individuals?

    This is the Democrats bill. Not a Republican voted for it.

    um….you do realize that the Democratic plans do NOTHING to address rising costs other than to re-distribute them, right?

    wouldn’t real “reform” address the root causes of those costs, and not just force taxpayers to share them?

    You should change Republican to Insurance Company execs. Both sides are in their pockets equally. The hardest hit will be those companies now in existence who do not provide insurance. They will have to begin paying fines that they haven’t paid out before. On the other hand, any company which now offers insurance will be able to stop doing that and pay the fine instead of the much more expensive insurance premiums. I’m not sure about this, though, since I think there is a lower cap below which a company isn’t held responsible.

    Where have you been? Repubs cant stop the health bill from passing…dems have the super majority..any failure in the bill passing falls on the dems and dems alone.

    Didn’t you answer someone else’s question a few minutes ago with the tirade of don’t plan your future on something that isn’t going to happen?
    Now all of a sudden you’re afraid that it will.

    Stop talking out of both sides of your mouth.

    They will simply drop employee matching, forcing individuals to purchase a government option and before you know it…poof….one choice is left….the government’s. BTW….it’s democrats doing this, not republicans.

  13. Shovel Ready said :

    You appear to have your parties mixed up. It is the Democrats trying to increase taxes and force expensive new requirements on business.

    The more the better from their point of view as then that will mean that Obama’s reforms are damaging America, or so they will argue. And that means that they can go back to the wonderful healthcare system that no other western nation has!

    It surprises me that so many Americans seem not to be aware about Obama’s healthcare plans [a]. During the election, he campaigned for these changes stating that he felt it was unfair to have a system where insurance companies try to escape paying claims and was elected to bring in changes [b].
    First of all, too many people do not know that Obama wants to make insurance more available to all. His system is similar to that which works in Holland, Taiwan [c] and Switzerland. It works there and private healthcare companies provide most the insurance to the people there.
    FACT – the USA spends more on healthcare PER PERSON than any other nation on the planet [d].
    FACT – insurance companies admit that they push up costs, buy politicians and do not pay out for many claims when they should [e].
    FACT – the US has higher death rates for kids aged under five than western European countries with universal health coverage [f].

    That means that a dead American four year old would have had a better chance of life if they were born in Canada, France, the Netherlands, Cuba, Switzerland, Germany, Japan etc, all of which have universal health coverage. And no western European nation with universal healthcare has moved away from it. And the sad thing is, that the insurance companies have spent loads of money to fight these reforms [g] and loads of politicians are taking the thirty pieces of silver from them to fight the reforms, rather than fight for the health of the American people.

    Remember, I back my facts up with evidence. Those who say they are wrong tend not to. If they are wrong, e-mail me with proof and let me know.
