Polling shows small business support for healthcare reform. Robert Kraig with Citizen Action says the new polling data, Citizen Action of Wisconsin and Small Business Majority, shows the majority of Wisconsin small business owners believe healthcare reform is necessary.
"Skyrocketing health care costs are a drag on the economy," says Kraig. "We need to reduce them in order to get the economy back on track. It also discourages entrepreneurship, which means fewer small businesses are created, which means fewer jobs here in Wisconsin."
Two hundred randomly selected small business owners in Wisconsin, one of 14 states polled in the last six months. "It's not surprising that they find health care costs a major issue," says Kraig. "But, what's very encouraging is that they strongly believe there should be shared responsibility, and that they're willing to be part of the solution, along with other stakeholders."
