Matt Yglesias attempts to answer a question that I have wondered about since the inception of Obamacare: Why don’t small business groups like the National Federation of Independent Businesses embrace it?
Because I run a small business, I am approached from time to time by the NFIB about joining up, and I always ask this question. I’ve never gotten an answer that seemed very satisfying.
The difficulty of providing health insurance to employees of a tiny business always has struck me as a great barrier to a dynamic American economy. Obamacare at least gives me, and small business owners like me, some hope.
