Washington, D.C. (May 4, 2017) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) today issued the following statement on behalf of President and CEO Juanita Duggan thanking members of the House of Representatives for passing the American Health Care Act (AHCA):
“Passage of the American Health Care Act is a crucial first step toward health-care reform that works for small business. It repeals many of the Obamacare taxes, repeals the mandates, and clears the way for additional reforms to make health care affordable, flexible, and predictable.
“Small business owners have been waiting for repeal for many years. As predicted during NFIB’s landmark lawsuit to overturn Obamacare in the Supreme Court, our members’ costs have skyrocketed and choices for employers and employees were destroyed. Now that the House has kept its promise, we urge the Senate to pass the measure as soon as possible.
“The House must now address tax reform, another critical small business problem that has been neglected for decades. Small businesses need tax reform that creates parity between small and large corporations and reduces rates.”
