The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) today issued the following statement on behalf of President and CEO Juanita Duggan in response to the “motion to proceed” with debate regarding the repeal of Obamacare:
“We are pleased to see that the Senate took a crucial first step toward repealing Obamacare. The skyrocketing cost of healthcare has been the number-one problem for small business owners for more than 30 years. What small business owners want is a system that is affordable and predictable, with choices.
“Obamacare inflicted a healthcare system on our members that dramatically increased costs and diminished selection. Keeping Obamacare is not an option for small business, and much work remains. NFIB is watching to see which Senators deliver on their campaign promises to small business.”
