Healthcare Experts and Small Business Owners Available to Give Small Business Perspective on Affordable Care Act Repeal

For Immediate Release: 
Wednesday, January 4, 2017

John Arensmeyer, Founder & CEO of Small Business Majority, is available to speak to media about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and how it has helped small business owners. Small business owners nationwide are also available to share their personal ACA success stories.

Who: Small business and economic expert John Arensmeyer, Founder & CEO of Small Business Majority, is available to speak to media about the ways in which small employers have benefited from the Affordable Care Act.

“The Affordable Care Act has been instrumental in helping entrepreneurs and their employees who struggled previously to access or afford health insurance coverage,” said John Arensmeyer, Founder & CEO of Small Business Majority. “Since 2010 the increase in small business healthcare costs has been at the lowest level in years, following regular double-digit increases prior to the law’s enactment. And because the law made it far easier for the self-employed to obtain coverage, many entrepreneurs have been willing to go out on their own and start new ventures. Anyone who would deny the positive impacts of the law on small businesses either hasn’t been paying attention or cares more about scoring political points with their base than about job growth in America.”

When: John Arensmeyer is available for interviews by phone this week and next. He is also available for interviews in person in Washington, D.C., Jan. 10 and 11. Small business owners around the country are available by phone.
