With a looming Wednesday deadline for insurance companies to decide whether or not they will remain in the Affordable Care Act health insurance marketplaces that serve 39 states, Small Business Majority Founder & CEO John Arensmeyer is available to speak to media about the negative impact an unstable healthcare market will have on small firms.
