Poll: Small businesses support bigger government healthcare role

The Tennessean, July 7, 2009

A Tennessee healthcare policy group plans to publicize the results of a springtime survey that showed a majority of small businesses want a larger government role in providing healthcare to more Americans, but many of them also have questions about cost and quality. The small-business survey found that 61% of 245 companies that responded to a survey mailed in March said they support a stronger government role in "guaranteeing access to quality affordable health care," according to the report's authors.
