Small businesses oppose mandates for health plans
New York Times, December 13, 2007
The National Federation of Independent Business has warned politicians and policy makers not to impose new health-benefit obligations on small employers. In a statement, the group said that "a healthcare system built on employer mandates or on play-or-pay taxes is unacceptable." The group also called for universal healthcare, with a government safety net to help the neediest obtain coverage.
