I employ 5 people. Because of the Affordable Care Act, I pay the entire health insurance premium for my employees because I now get a tax credit of almost $4000. My employees have more money in their pockets to bolster the economy since they don't have to make an employee contribution. There are no longer co-pays for basic tests such as a colonoscopy or mammogram. Again leaving more money in our pockets, which being middle class we spend. My premiums increased minimally even though we now have a plan with no lifetime limits. This is a law that is good for small businesses.

Thanks for a clear explaination of ACA's affect on small business. Too bad that the administration can't explain each part of the ACT as clearly, Maybe somebody will show your remarks to the President.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

And for good reason, too.
