Small Business Survey: Obamacare Already Killing Jobs

A just-released Harris survey of small business executives commissioned by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce found that 74 percent say “the recent health care law makes it harder for their business to hire more employees.”

The survey contacted 1,322 individuals who hold an executive level position in a company with fewer than 500 employees and annual revenue less than $25M. It has a sampling error rate of plus-or-minus 2.5 percentage points.

Charles Owens, Michigan state director of the National Federation of Independent Business, told CapCon, "The study confirms what our members have been telling us; it’s sad that this president cannot connect the dots between his anti-employer initiatives and the resulting glacial pace of new job creation."
