One year later, the health care caw is still a bad prescription

Small businesses are speaking out on higher than expected costs and the wave of crushing new regulations.

“The goal of providing health insurance coverage is noble, but the restaurant industry can’t afford the steep fines and mandates loaded upon us by the health care bill. Paying the penalties will be devastating for most.” (Scott Womack, President of Womack Restaurants, Testimony Before The House Ways and Means Committee, January 26, 2011)

“The uncertainty caused just by the employer mandate alone can hardly be emphasized enough. It causes us to seriously hesitate before taking any risks needed to grow our business.” (Bill Feinburg, President of Allied Kitchen and Bath, Inc., Testimony Before the House Committee on Small Business, February 16, 2011)

“As the costs of the health care law and other burdensome mandates continue to pile up, Bowlmor will be forced to look for other ways to control costs and this may mean reducing our workforce.” (Brett Parker, Vice Chairman and Chief Financial Officer of Bowlmore Lanes, Testimony Before The House Committee on Education and the Workforce’s Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor and Pensions, March 10, 2011)
