NRCA Action Alert: Support Repeal of Harmful Health Care Law

Jan. 17, 2011

On Jan. 19, the newly convened House of Representatives will vote on legislation (H.R. 2) to repeal the health care law enacted by Congress in 2010. NRCA supports repeal of this fatally flawed law that imposes job-killing taxes, mandates and compliance burdens on employers and ultimately fails to address the underlying problem of rapidly rising health care costs.

NRCA supports health care reform that contains effective solutions that address the problem of rising costs through greater competition, choice and transparency in private markets. Unfortunately, the new health care law is increasing costs through numerous taxes, fees and mandates that are already burdening small and mid-sized businesses, the primary job creators in our nation's economy. To pursue true reform and boost economic growth, Congress should repeal the flawed health care law that is forcing employers to divert resources away from investments that are so desperately needed to boost job creation.

NRCA is urging House members to support repeal of the onerous health care law while also noting our support for reform that truly controls costs and makes health care coverage affordable for employers. We need your help in letting House members know of your concerns.

Contact your representative and urge him or her to support repeal of the health care law because:
  • It imposes billions of dollars in new taxes that will be passed on to employers and workers, including a new annual tax that will fall almost entirely on small businesses that purchase health coverage in the fully insured market.
  • It fails to help small businesses gain access to affordable health benefits because it fundamentally fails to address the underlying problem of rising costs.
  • It creates burdensome new paperwork requirements, such as the new IRS Form 1099 requirements and places restrictions on HSAs, FSAs and HRAs.
  • It fails to contain effective reforms such as medical liability reform, one of the biggest drivers of rising health care costs.
Thank you for your assistance with NRCA's government relations efforts by taking the time to contact your representative. If you have questions, comments or need more information, please contact Duane Musser, NRCA's vice president of government relations, at (202) 546-7584 or dmusser@nrca.net.
