How can it be?
With all the negative headlines about Obamacare being bad, how is it that 52% of small businesses support it? And why should you care?
Because you may end up becoming the owner of a small business someday. And this stuff matters.
Obamacare Favored By A 2:1 Margin
According to a recent scientific poll conducted by Chesapeake Beach Consulting (for Small Business Majority*), around half of the respondents (49%) say they would choose the ACA (Obamacare) over the AHCA , while only 25% said they would choose the replacement plan over current law. Fourteen percent said they would choose neither plan.
*Small Business Majority is a national small business advocacy organization, founded and run by small business owners to focus on solving the biggest problems facing small businesses today. We actively engage small business owners across America to drive smart public policy and get entrepreneurs the resources they need to thrive.
52% Of Small Businesses Actually Support The ACA
The poll also shows that 52% of small businesses support Obamacare. Again, over half of the small businesses polled support Obamacare.
Here is a link to the poll, with more specifics.
The Need To Stay Informed
If you’re a franchise owner, or hope to be, it’s important for you to stay informed.
You need to keep up with current trends in franchising, financial news, along with current and future legislation affecting small business. But don’t just skim the headlines. Read entire articles so you can get the facts. Subscribe to blogs that discuss things that will affect you. Read op-ed pieces that are published on legitimate sites. Ignore publications that have great headline writers but lack substance and/or verifiable facts.
These days, there’s a lot of shouting. A lot of spin. A lot of complete and utter B.S. It’s getting harder and harder to determine what is real and what is not.
In the final analysis, both of our political parties have ideas to help small businesses in our country thrive. Let’s listen to all of them.
