The Obama Administration has been ramping up its effort to sell ObamaCare to a still skeptical American public.
Last week, Politico reported that a new organization run by former Obama campaign staffers would try to sell the law to the uninsured at events around the country. This on top of the administration working with the NBA and NFL to promote ObamaCare to sports fans.
While they may be able to sell some naive Americans unicorns and fairy dust of ObamaCare, others will likely see the very real negative impact the law is already causing.
According to a recent survey from Gallup, small business owners are already reporting that they’ve had to suspend hiring or eliminate jobs because of the uncertainty that ObamaCare is bringing to their bottomline (emphasis mine):
Small business owners’ fear of the effect of the new health-care reform law on their bottom line is prompting many to hold off on hiring and even to shed jobs in some cases, a recent poll found.
Forty-one percent of the businesses surveyed have frozen hiring because of the health-care law known as Obamacare. And almost one-fifth—19 percent— answered “yes” when asked if they had “reduced the number of employees you have in your business as a specific result of the Affordable Care Act.”
The poll was taken by 603 owners whose businesses have under $20 million in annual sales.
