U.S. African Chamber of Commerce President Expresses Concern over Health Care Bill
Date:3/26/2010

Shortly after the signing of the health care bill by President Barack Obama, Martin Mohamed, President of the U.S. African Chamber of Commerce, warns of the long-term adverse impact of health care reform on the national debt and the business sector. He supports a “repealed” version of the bill that will not only bolster the national deficit but ensure quality and affordable health care for all.

Washington, D.C. (Vocus) March 27, 2010 -- U.S. African Chamber of Commerce (USACC) President Martin Mohamed released the following statement on passage of the health care bill: “This health care bill is not really a true universal health care reform. It ignores the will of the American people and it does not have a strong public option.” Mr. Mohamed believes that this bill will, in fact, increase long-term taxes, increase the national deficit, and make small businesses suffer.

According to the USACC, it will not help the American people, including the immigrant populations across America, especially during these dire economic jobs and unemployment crises, the increasing numbers of families facing foreclosures and losing their homes to lenders who are reaping the unfair benefits of being bailed out.

“Without the public option, the increasing national debt, the current insurmountable deficit, on top of this the $900 billion health reform bill which will increases taxes for big and small businesses alike, we need 20 million new jobs for this country,” says the group.

While there is a need for health care reform, the U.S. African Chamber of Commerce would like a “repealed” health care reform bill that will not only reduce costs but help low-income people, especially immigrant populations, afford decent health care -- taking into account the impact on the national deficit while ensuring quality health care for every citizen.

USACC will work with both business and private sectors, including government and nonprofit agencies and organizations, to promote health care reform, to expand consumer choices and options in the provision of quality health care for all.

The USACC is the leading advocacy organization for U.S. African relations and emerging African markets. The USACC is the umbrella organization for African chambers of commerce and professional trade and business associations throughout the United States and abroad.
