Nonprofit groups upset at exclusion from health bills
New York Times, September 14, 2009
Nonprofit organizations say they are upset that Congress and the Obama administration have not addressed their rising healthcare costs in the various healthcare proposals. The main bill in the House would award a tax credit to small businesses that provide their employees with health insurance, but nonprofits do not pay income taxes and thus would not benefit. Some nonprofit groups have called for a subsidy along the lines of the Earned Income Tax Credit, in which money would be returned to organizations that demonstrate they have paid for an employee's healthcare.
