The truth about small business and health care

I don’t know a single small business owner who wants to deal with the hassles, time, and expense of providing health coverage to its employees.

Frankly, my team’s personal health issues should be private and none of my business. (But I do care about making sure they have health care.)

I would ecstatically hand over health care management and payment to the government.

Any politician who claims that small business owners want to manage a health plan is full of crap.

I’ve got better things to do — like grow my business and create more jobs. There are 2.2 million small businesses (2-99 employees) in the US. I bet every one of us would hire one extra person in exchange for not having to deal with and pay for healthcare.

    I own a small business here in Canada. Although we still have extended care insurance (dental, massage, drugs etc). Health insurance just isn’t even a business topic here.
