For decades, hardworking entrepreneurs have faced skyrocketing health care costs. And that directly stunts their ability to grow. Small business owners want to provide benefits for their employees—we know that from our research. We also know affordability is the most common concern among small business owners who don’t offer coverage. But the Affordable Care Act is changing that. Health insurance exchanges and small business tax credits are giving small firms the kind of clout that large businesses enjoy in the marketplace, making it easier for them to afford health insurance for their employees. As we quickly approach 2014, when coverage expansions take effect, it’s imperative to educate small business owners about the cost-saving opportunities and coverage options that will be available to them and to their employees.

The latest jobs data shows small businesses are off to a running start in the job creation department this year, proving entrepreneurs are doing more than ever to lift post-recession employment. But it’s also true that small firms aren’t immune to the lingering effects of our disrupted financial market. Despite the mantra that slackening Wall Street’s reins will promote economic growth, recent national opinion polling reveals the majority of entrepreneurs believe the opposite: Wall Street should be held accountable for the financial crisis with rules that are stronger, not weaker.

Small business has been the focus of Washington’s high-profile tax debate, both prior to and following the “fiscal cliff” fracas that closed out 2012. But as noisy as the small business tax issue has been, there’s been considerably more time spent debating cuts that will help a thin sliver of taxpayers in the top brackets than hashing out solutions that will help the vast majority of entrepreneurs

This is a special feature from Small Business Majority CEO, John Arensmeyer. Late last year, California held the nation’s inaugural cap-and-trade auction, where greenhouse gas emission permits were sold in an effort to monetize and reduce carbon pollution. And just last month, new cap-and-trade regulations on large power and industrial plants officially went into effect. Those events and the topic of greenhouse gas legislation in general have incited considerable debate about the adverse economic effect such laws could have on small businesses at a time of fiscal strain and uncertainty. The answer is: very little. In fact, small businesses have much to gain.

Since the Affordable Care Act became law nearly three years ago, there has been an ongoing stream of misinformation about the impact the law will have on America's small business owners.

In his State of the Union Address, President Obama put forward a plan that will help small business owners expand and create jobs through initiatives on tax reform, manufacturing, clean energy, immigration, and skills and education. When combined with the President’s plan for balanced deficit reduction, none of these proposals will add a dime to the deficit.

The Fiscal Cliff discussions have become somewhat of a joke after House Speaker Boehner was unsuccessful in delivering his Plan B. A far as the letter B you can fill in the rest. The B can stand for Bogus, Bad or pick a B.S. Boehner's caucus was obviously not impressed with the deal. So, why should the White House be moved? These are obvious attempts to attack the middle class, small businesses with less than 100 employees and low income families.
