January 14, 2011Dear Representative:As Congress reassesses its role in the healthcare reform discussion, we urge you to listenclosely to the input of America’s small businesses and take immediate steps to repeal thePatient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). NFIB strongly supports H.R. 2,the “Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act,” and
a vote in favor of H.R. 2 willbe scored as an NFIB Key Vote for the 112 Congress.
th
 Small business owners understand that PPACA is a fatally-flawed solution that they donot want and cannot afford. NFIB recently balloted its members, and 93% agreed thatCongress should repeal the new law. In addition, the December 13, 2010 RasmussenReports national telephone survey indicates that 60 percent of likely voters at leastsomewhat favor repeal of the healthcare law – a four point increase from a poll conductedearlier in December.In February of 2010, prominent supporters, speaking at a White House Summit said,“This bill is not only about the health security of America. It's about jobs. In its life itwill create 4 million jobs -- 400,000 jobs almost immediately; jobs, again, in the healthcare industry, but in the entrepreneurial world as well.” Instead, what we have heardrepeatedly are the voices of job creators who have said that they will not create jobsbecause the healthcare law is financed through destructive job-killing policies including:
 
An employer mandate that encourages job cuts, not job creation
 
New taxes on small business health insurance plans
 
Onerous 1099 paperwork information reporting mandates
 
Union and big business carve-outs
 
Increases in Medicare payroll taxes
 
New taxes, fees and mandates specifically targeted at the small businesscommunity
 
Prohibitions on HSAs, FSAs and HRAs that limit employer and employeeflexibility and drive up healthcare costsOur small business owners remain deeply concerned that the healthcare law costs toomuch and further jeopardizes the economic recovery of our nation’s job creators. If newtaxes, new mandates and new government programs in PPACA remain intact the law willstifle the ability to hire, grow and invest – key components that are necessary to moveAmerica’s economy forward in a robust and meaningful way. Simply put, Congress mustrepeal PPACA immediately.National Federation of Independent Business
