SMALL BUSINESS, BIG BURDENS
Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the American Action Forum, and Paul Howard discuss Obamacare's debilitating effects on small businesses.

Click here to listen to the podcast.

"The indirect costs [of Obamacare to small businesses] . . . are we're likely to have higher insurance premiums as a result of this, employers are going to bear at least part of that cost, [small businesses] are going to have to rework their insurance packages to meet the requirements of the law--indeed some of them may rework compensation broadly and stop providing insurance--and they'll have to deal with an environment that's very confusing. They'll have lots of new rules that they don't' understand . . . and indeed they may be in a very deficit-ridden environment where they see higher insurance rates, higher taxes, or both."
—Douglas Holtz-Eakin
