GUEST CONTRIBUTOR: What health care reform could mean to small businesses

After months of rancorous public debate (and often melodramatic spectacle), it appears that our elected officials may actually be inching toward a definitive compromise on the most comprehensive health care reform legislation since the enactment of Medicare.

While the details are still being worked out, what is certain is that HR 3200 – or the America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009 – will ultimately have a profound effect on the American health care system.

While most of the public discourse has focused primarily upon the highly controversial public health option, the potential impact the law might have upon the nation’s small businesses appears to have been largely overlooked.

Considering the lion’s share of new jobs is, in fact, created by small businesses, this is clearly an unfortunate oversight.
