More in touch with reality, Susan Eckerly, senior vice president at the National Federation of Independent Business, the nation’s leading small business association, issued the following warning in January: “Like a freight train without brakes, Congress is determined to pass health reform, even at the expense of our nation’s chief job creators — small business.”
In March, three days after the health overhaul legislation was passed, Eckerly warned of the job-killing impact of legislation’s mandates for higher taxes: “This isn’t a health care bill. This is a tax bill wrapped in health care paper.”
Eckerly’s right. Incentives and job creation aren’t stimulated by way of higher taxes and increased mandates.
