Health care repeal will hurt small business

February 05, 2011

My Maryland based company has been in business for just over eight years, and our premiums have more than doubled during this time. However, after the passage of the Affordable Care Act, our premiums actually declined in 2010.

Furthermore, as the husband of a lung-transplant recipient (and cancer survivor), I know how the importance of eliminating the lifetime caps on insurance payments.
