While the Supreme Courts decision upholding the Obamacare law may potentially benefit some people, this is not good news for me and other small businesses.
To preface, health-care premiums for my business have risen as much as 20 percent in a single year. In the last two years, the increases have stabilized as weve become larger and more adept at seeking out cost effective plans.
If I thought that this plan would result in decreased health-care premiums, I might support it, but there is no reason to think that it will do this. One of the main reasons health care is so expensive in this country is the separation of the consumer from the price of the product. I asked one of my employees (whose wife just had a baby) what the cost of the birth was to the insurance company and the person had no idea.
I asked if given a choice between a $1,500 delivery, a $5,000 delivery and a $20,000 delivery for the exact same service, which would he pick. The response was the $1,500 delivery, even if he wasnt paying.

Because We Say So.
Based on how it reads, corporations.
