Institute for Liberty Announces the Launch of Keeping Small Business Healthy
Date:10/7/2009

A champion for small business and smart health care reform targeting AR, LA, MO, NE, VA

WASHINGTON, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Institute for Liberty today announced the launch of Keeping Small Business Healthy. The project's primary objective is to ensure any health care reform legislation passed by Congress addresses the challenges faced by small business without imposing harmful government mandates.

"The nation faces serious economic challenges and any credible foray into reforming America's health care system must not only recognize these challenges, but it's solutions cannot exacerbate either the existing health care problems or the nation's economic difficulties," said Andrew Langer, IFL's President and Executive Director of the Keep Small Business Healthy initiative.

Beginning this week, the project will host a series of breakfast meetings with small business owners across the country to learn about issues American small businesses face regarding health care reform and to educate small business owners on how to become involved in the health care reform debate.

Kick-off meetings will begin in Baton Rouge, LA on Wednesday and Little Rock, AR, on Thursday. The project will also host future meetings in Missouri, Nebraska and Virginia.

"American small businesses are the most powerful force in the U.S. economy, providing 2/3 of all new jobs," continued Langer. "When small businesses hire, the economy starts moving. When they don't, the economy stalls. Ill-conceived health care reforms will penalize employers. During these challenging economic times small businesses, and the working families that depend on them, cannot afford to pay for exorbitant government mandates."

Keeping Small Business Healthy believes that health care reform must be smart reform that includes medical liability reform, true health insurance competition, and transparency for consumers to help decrease costs.

Keeping Small Business Healthy is an initiative of the Institute for Liberty and to learn more about the project visit www.healthysmallbusiness.org.
