What the ACA Is Costing You

With the recent budget deal in Washington where they actually did the job they are supposed to.  Figure out a way to spend your money. The U.S. government is usually fair at best when predicting how much something will cost. This is probably because once you add a government job you cannot take it away. Nevertheless, addressing the cost of this law is fairly simple if you can apply these three principles to your situation to get an idea of what this law will really cost you over the next several years.

Walking In Memphis

Last week, I had the opportunity to speak at the Westin Hotel on Beale Street in Memphis, TN to over 50 business owners from across the country specializing in custom doors and hardware, glass.  They are the “average” American businesses being challenged by the law.  This is not because they are not playing by the rules because many of them are offering quite generous plans.  Traveling all over the country to speak to companies and their employees has caused me to understand their frustration.

Veto Power

The children have returned and have wasted little time in getting the country involved in another political staring match.  Do not act surprised because we have seen this happen before and the only people who suffer are those associated with the middle class and small business.  Both sides deserve equal blame and this political exercise is once again over the Continuing Resolution that was a result of no real action during the fiscal cliff and comparable events.

Tracking the Hat

By John Rathouz aka John the Caddie
Co-host of America’s Healthcare Challenge

What’s one way to begin to explain healthcare reform and hint at the challenges facing America?  Wear a HealthReformExplained.com hat, that’s what I do.  For over five months now, I’ve been donning the white flat-bill emblazoned with a red and blue logo.  The hat was a gift to me from Sean McGuire, the leader of this just cause, originally made to be worn during the US Open golf tournament in Philadelphia this past June.
