Then there are other small businesses like the one in Meadville, Pa. that are under 50 employees now but are expanding to the point of taking over another larger building not far away, gonna try & triple their work force within the year or sooner if the new equipment & operators can be found ( I think the name is Astrotech) a local machining Co.. HC has little to do with it if there is little market for what you do, if you produce a product for pennies or millions & there is no demand that's what determines if a business will grow or not, HC costs like everything else business wise has a write off as part of doing business.

I always hated that analogy of "you can afford it because you can just use it as a write off " it is a very ignorant statement.

I didn't make the laws, is the statement true or not? The rest of what I said is that if you have no buyers then you have no business, is that also not true? What is so ignorant about it? I have owned several businesses in my lifetime & always grew if I could, my costs of doing business increased as well as the profits & I paid taxes accordingly. What's so hard you provide a needed service or product then you grow or stagnate & someone else will take the business, your choice.

That part is true. I was only referring to one part, didn't refer to this part you are bringing up. It just rubs me the wrong way when people say that just because you have a business and can write something off you can afford it. Our company is lucky we can help with health care and other benefit's. Not that we are getting rich by any means. Some business's just cannot afford to spend any more because of any outside reasons or consequences. Being forced to spend any more can be the last straw for some companies. My statement was not directed directly at you, just the general statement.

Business owners require predictability
This administration does not provide that
The economy proves it


Almost every small business I know of, actually needs to add more people to the roster; but because of the new regulations and overall uncertainty, they are waiting. The biggest part of this is, with so many other businesses facing the same situation, costs are going up. If businesses cannot get products to sell, or build at lower rates, the ONLY thing they can control is labor costs, and often this is the biggest expenditure.

So they simply do not hire more people, and if the number of people is regulated, then they simply will go to more part time jobs.

I do not think this concept is a complex one.

If you don't make a profit, you can't write anything off.
No profit, no taxes, no write off, no growth.
Try buying material with the same money you spend on HC.
Only Washington gets to do that trick.
