Health Care Reform

Write your Congressional Representatives (both House and Senate) today expressing your support of key principles critical to healthcare reform. A 2009 member poll by Women Impacting Public policy showed that 72% of women business owners believe health care reform is needed in order to be successful.

Whether you are a business owner or not, this is an important subject that will affect all of us.

Key components of healthcare reform that WIPP vigorously supports:

·Creation of a private nationwide insurance purchasing pool for small businesses;
·Tax credits for small businesses that offer healthcare to their employees;
·Rating reform and the elimination of health status for benefits rating;
·A simplified enrollment process; and
·An individual requirement for health insurance coverage.

WIPP vigorously opposes:
·An employer mandate that includes small businesses; and
·The taxation of employee health benefits.

What do you think?
