Gallup poll finds "startling" jobs numbers re: Obamacare


quote:

"We were startled because we know that employers were concerned about the Affordable Care Act and the effects it would have on their business, but we didn't realize the extent they were concerned, or that the businesses were being proactive to make sure the effects of the ACA actually were minimized," said attorney Steven Friedman of Littler Mendelson. His firm, which specializes in employment law, commissioned the Gallup poll.


quote:

Forty-one percent of the businesses surveyed have frozen hiring because of the health-care law known as Obamacare. And almost one-fifth—19 percent— answered "yes" when asked if they had "reduced the number of employees you have in your business as a specific result of the Affordable Care Act."


quote:

Another 38 percent of the small business owners said they "have pulled back on their plans to grow their business" because of Obamacare.

I'm surprised that anyone would be surprised business is doing this.

There were a whole bunch of people saying this would happen. It should surprise no one.

It's just basic common sense.

Imagine how shock they'll be to wake up on December 25th and discover its Christmas. Seriously, how could a firm specializing in employment law be this out of touch with business owners?

I am a small business owner and we literally have in excess of 13000 clients across our country that we do business with each year and stay in contact with. I can tell you this finding is not only not a surprise to me but reflects the mindset of a overwhelming majority of businesses we are in contact with. So much so I suspect their findings are significantly skewed in some way.

Anyone that is surprised by this finding is a moron and illustrates why our country has the issues we have!

re: Gallup poll finds "startling" jobs numbers re: Obamacare


After his final campaign, the 1984 Democratic presidential primaries, McGovern bought the Stratford Inn in 1988. The inn not only had 150 rooms, but also a restaurant and facilities for hosting large conferences. It was his first business experience after decades in politics, academia, and the military.

The experience was an eye-opening one. His purchase was followed by renovations and then opening for business. But the business went bankrupt within two years, and closed by 1991.

He described the negative impact of government regulations and rule-making on business. Government regulations, he said, looked different when he was the business owner than when he was the legislator.

“The concept that most often eludes legislators,” he wrote, “is: ‘Can we make consumers pay the higher prices for the increased operating costs that accompany public regulations and government reporting requirements with reams of red tape.’”

As business owner, he suddenly worried over the ever-increasing cost of health insurance, excessive and outlandish litigation, and scapegoating. He came face-to-face with the reality in the private sector that “consumers do have a choice when faced with higher prices. . . Every such decision eventually results in job losses for someone.”

After his experience in the private sector, McGovern was talking about “profit margins, labor intensive vs. capital intensive businesses, and local market economics” in ways that he never did in Washington. And that’s no surprise — he was unable to talk about those things before because he had never dealt with them firsthand.

“In retrospect, I wish I had known more about the hazards and difficulties of such a business,” McGovern concluded. “I also wish that during the years I was in public office, I had had this firsthand experience about the difficulties business people face every day. That knowledge would have made me a better U.S. senator and a more understanding presidential contender.”

I suppose community organizers aren't familiar with the travails of business ownership.
