    Shane focuses his critique of health-care reform on the impact of the small business tax credits—a key component of the law that took effect in 2010—and even implies that the effect has been negative. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, many insurers saw a dramatic increase in small group plan enrollments in 2010. America's largest health insurance company, UnitedHealth Group (UNH), enrolled 75,000 new small business employees; Coventry Health Care (CVH) added 115,000 enrollees; and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City attributes its 58 percent increase in small business coverage specifically to the tax credits, noting that 38 percent of the new business came from companies that had not previously offered insurance.

    This report, released with Families USA, a non profit consumer health care advocate, determined that about 84% of small businesses across the nation would be eligible for the tax credit on 2010 returns. This is over 4 million companies and is seen as a great benefit overall. It’s clear that there will be some type of improvement for small businesses as they strive to offer affordable health insurance benefits to their employees.

    Health Care Reform Helps Small Businesses

    -----------------------------------------

    Oops.

    Since the most expensive form of health care is "Emergency Room Visits", I guess Republicans want to stick the middle class with the bill.

    Since the number one cause of bankruptcies is "medical bills", I guess Republicans want Americans to go bankrupt.

    Since no one has been arrested or sent to prison for not buying HC, I guess that means Republicans are now, really, really depressed. Depressed enough to get HC? No, because it's a "pre existing condition".

    Hmmm, why don't Republican leaders drop their "Government Health Care"? Isn't that "socialism"?

    Ah, you mean to tell me that the Health Care Bill actually helps small businesses? That cannot be true, everybody knows that President Obama is the Anti-Christ and working to destroy America. Just ask Willow:razz:

    The Republican definition of "small business" is revenue of at least one billion dollars a year.

    It obviously doesn't help big business otherwise they wouldn't have asked for and received ObamaCare waivers. Hmm, now why would they want that?

    And you guys are dummies if you think the rich are gonna' pay for your ObamaCare. They'll just pass it on to the middleclass.

    Like when California put an "Out of State Home Owners Tax" of $75 on my home there I just passed it on to the renter. See how that works?

    Morons both of you.

    When people go to the emergency room the cost is passed on to the middle class at 10 times the cost or more.

    What's your solution? "Die quickly"?

    Good luck getting an answer out of any of the extreme right wing on this site for that one. Oddball just dodged that very question I asked him in another thread today.

    Nothing like gubmint breaking your leg, then handing you a crutch and telling you how "lucky" you are to have them there to save the day.

    Deny services to illegal aliens. Google "California Emergency Room Closure" and see how many get shuttered due to illegals using them as their primary care facility.

    You won't do it though, learning isn't your strong suit.
