Small business fights healthcare reform law

Healthcare reform has another opponent--small business. The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) filed a motion with the Supreme Court yesterday to add new two plaintiffs--NFIB members--to the case over the individual mandate, reports The Wall Street Journal. Opponents challenge the law that requires small businesses to dedicate funds to pay for health insurance or face penalties, starting in 2014. For example, Dana Grimes, the owner of a roofing company in Greenwich, N.Y., said if he had to pay for health insurance, he would have to close his company due to financial constraints. The Supreme Court will hear the case in March with a decision expected before July. Article
