While small businesses are exempt from many of the most rigorous requirements of the Affordable Care Act -- most notably, the Employer Mandate -- there are still some requirements and even some opportunities that small business owners should be aware of.
There are many functions that only the government can perform and many others that Congress has decided that it should perform. In the case of the ACA, as with many other programs, its relationship with the relevant markets is ambivalent, uneasy, and uncertain.
The sad truth is you can work full time in America and not be able to meet your family's basic needs. A parent working full time at the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour earns $15,080 a year before taxes. That's $4,700 below the poverty level for a parent with two children.
