I own a small business. In 2007 I started offering health care insurance to my employees as a benefit. My premium was under $3000.00 a month. Once the Affordable Health Care act was passed, my premiums rose in a three year span more than $2000.00 a month and have continued to rise each year thereafter. I just received my renewal letter and I am incurring another $900.00 a month hike in premiums to almost $7000.00 a month starting January 1st. Here I am a small businessman. I want to do what I feel is right for my hard working staff. How is a small businessman supposed to reason this? Just simply accept a 12k decrease in annual earnings? Who could accept that? And it is all attributed to federal interference...... You want a lesson in government efficiency? Go visit your local Social Security office or Department of Highways office..... This is precisely why I do and will vote conservative until the day I leave this earth. Affordable Health Care??? My backside!!
