**In Case You Missed It** Louisiana Small Business Owners Need Health Care Reform
Date:12/8/2009

s have gone up so much for a small business like ours (we currently have four employees) that none of our workers can afford insurance.

My husband and I are struggling in this economic downturn to pay our premiums. This is due to rising costs in the past two consecutive years, along with a rise in the deductible.

Something needs to be done. There are several things that really need to be fixed.

We've got to put an end to pre-existing condition clauses -- it's just not right that insurance companies can deny coverage or game the system to push people out after they get sick.

Health care needs to be portable, too.

And I'd like to see more choices on the table, so small businesses could band together to share responsibility. This could save jobs and increase affordability.

The solutions are within reach, the House already has passed a good reform bill, and with strong leadership in the Senate, we have an opportunity to enact reform that will finally solve this problem for small businesses like ours.

With health-care costs continuing to skyrocket with no end in sight, we can't afford to wait another year for health care-reform.

Now is the time.

For more than 20 years I have owned a chain of small businesses in Louisiana, and each year it gets tougher and tougher because of the high cost of health care. With premiums quoted as high as $500 a month per employee, it is impossible for me to afford insurance for my workers and still keep my business
