Comment: Nancy Pelosi said you would be able to become a violinist, an artist, or an actor thanks to Obamacare. Well, you’ll certainly have more time for these pursuits once you lose your hours or your job that actually paid the bills once upon a time.
“Despite the administration’s controversial decision to delay forcing companies to join Obamacare for a year, three-quarters of small businesses are still making plans to duck the costly law by firing workers, reducing hours of full-time staff, or shift many to part-time, according to a sobering survey released by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.”
“The Chamber’s second quarter small business survey found that just 30 percent are ready for the law and even understand what is required.”
“Dealing with Obamacare is the biggest worry of small businesses and comes as they continue to see a sluggish economy which has already put a brake on their hiring. Just 17 percent reported adding employees in the past two years. And only one-in-five small business owners believe that they will add employees in the next two years.”
“The Chamber added that “nearly one-in-four employers say the health care bill is their biggest obstacle to hiring more employees.”"
