On Monday, February 10, President Barak Obama announced that most of the nations employees won't have to pay a fine until 2016 if they don't provide health insurance for their employees. This is very good new for most employers and workers.
The U.S. economy is growing slowly. But Obamacare penalizes employers who try to provide much needed work for those struggling to find jobs. But requiring employers to provide healthcare to their workers, those employers are discouraged from providing fulltime employment to working people. And the government should be doing everything to help people find work and to encourage employers to hire them.
"I would like to hire more people, but I can't provide expensive health insurance," said Brad Heinman, a restaurant operator.
"We need to make it easier for companies to hire people and not discourage hiring," said Angela Gonzalez.
