The cost of health insurance for employed individuals of small business is exhorbitant and for many unaffordable. The reason it is unaffordable is the government has rules about what the insurers must provide and who can provide services. Insurers lose money, leave the market and prices get higher . If you are unemployed in America you get things free for yourself meaning paid for by the people who work or taxpayers
Big business has group plans and gets good rates- and of course lots of dough.
Small business has only a few employees -maybe one or two- gets horrible rates and has little dough.
Government knows all this and continues on the same path to further screw things up !
Before the government started trying to "fix" health care and provide for the poor and elderly in 1960- things were going along just fine. Private charity helped those in need and doctors cut deals with the needy .
We have a history of great health care and our leaders ignore it! Free Enterprise worked and can work again! It seems our government just can't leave well enough alone!
At the present time - Small Business and Individuals are getting the shaft! In reality , all people get he shaft when government meddles. After all being a grownup means you get to decide things for yourself.
