No one fought harder against the health-care reform law than the National Federation of Independent Business, which led the legal charge against the divisive legislation all the way to the Supreme Court. Now, with the law upheld and the political spotlight turning back to tax relief and spending cuts, we wondered where the small business group would shift its attention and resources.
Turns out, right back to health care.
"Our preference would still be to dismantle the law and start over, but obviously the political outlook there is not very favorable," NFIB President Dan Danner said in an interview. Danner has previously argued that the law "saddles small businesses with a wagonload of cost increases," stripping them of capital that could have otherwise been used to invest, hire and expand their companies.
