Most small businesses fear health care law
A new poll from the US Chamber of Commerce reveals an increasingly frustrated small business community worried about the impact President Obama's health care law may have on their bottom line. Nearly three-quarters, or 74 percent, say the new law is causing an impediment to job creation. Brad Close, vice president of Public Policy for the National Federation of Independent Business, said: "What they know so far scares them; worries them very much." Close said the businesses he represents are in favor of health care reform, but his clients ultimately could not support what President Obama has crafted.
