News from NFIB:
Today the National Federation of Independent Business/California (NFIB/CA) State Executive Director Tom Scott issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s executive order on healthcare Thursday:
“In the wake of the Senate’s failure to repeal Obamacare, we are grateful to President Trump for addressing regulations that make it harder and costlier for small business owners to provide healthcare for themselves and their employees. The cost of healthcare has been the number-one problem for small businesses for more than 30 years. NFIB has fought to remove penalties on small businesses for helping their workers buy health insurance, and the President’s action today advances that effort.”
NFIB, which was the lead plaintiff in the landmark Supreme Court case NFIB v Sebelius, supports full repeal of the Affordable Care Act. In 2016, we supported repeal of the healthcare reimbursement penalties, and submitted comments to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in June 2017 recommending regulatory changes.
