83 Percent of Small Businesses Say 'No' to Health Care Public Option, 89 Percent Say Government Cannot Provide Adequate Health Care

Michigan Business and Professional Association Releases New Health Care Overhaul Survey

WARREN, Mich., Dec. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Eighty-three percent of the owners of small businesses surveyed across Michigan do not support a government-operated health care plan as a public option for insurance, according to a new survey of the members of the Michigan Business and Professional Association (MBPA) and the Michigan Food and Beverage Association (MFBA) headquartered in Warren. This is intriguing data as Michigan's economy has been under national scrutiny and the bills were designed to help small business.

The U.S. House bill, as currently drafted, imposes a penalty of up to 8 percent of a business' payroll for not following the health care insurance mandate, a provision that 86 percent of Association members opposed in the survey.

Jennifer Kluge, COO of both Associations, said, "Small business has an important stake in the health care reform discussion, given the fact that our current economic condition has left many individuals without insurance and many businesses having to cut insurance as a cost savings measure. Legislators believe that small businesses see the public health care option as a positive, but our survey results show otherwise. The Associations oppose any health care changes that have a public option and we would encourage our lawmakers to do further diligence as they merge these bills"
