By now you have all heard about the Supreme Court decision upholding the individual mandate which now has been renamed a tax. I know many of you will disagree with me but I think it was a good decision and will help small businesses in the future. This will allow the Exchange to move forward to reduce the cost of health insurance for small business and increase the options for small business. It will also be a great benefit for sole proprietors who now have to go through medical underwriting to get coverage.
What do you think?
Some of the people that said they would talk to the media have been contacted and one of them is being interviewed by CNN. Thank you to all that said you would speak to the media.
I received a call from LA Business Journal looking for someone who would talk to him about SB1234. This is the mandate that would require all businesses with 5 or more employees to provide a retirement plan. Is anyone in the LA area who would be willing to talk to him. He is looking for someone with 5 or more employees who does not provide any kind of retirement plan. Small Business California opposed this
