NASE Member Charlie Arnold Testifies to House Small Business Community

On Thursday, March 6, 2014, NASE Member Charlie Arnold testified in front the Committee on Small Business Subcommittee hearing on “Contracting and Workforce Obamacare and the Self-Employed: What About Us?”

During his testimony, Arnold offered the perspective of our nation’s smallest businesses – the self-employed and micro-businesses. His testimony centered around the ongoing confusion small business owners across the country continue to have in regards to healthcare enrollment, as well as the difficulties in interpreting new rules issued governing Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRAs) and the disparity between “big business” and the small business community.

House Passes One-Year Individual Mandate Delay

On Wednesday, March 5, 2014, the House passed H.R. 4118, The Simple Fairness Act, which would give the American public and small business owners some much-needed relief by delaying the individual mandate for one-year.

NASE has been active in calling for both a one-year delay in the individual mandate penalty and extending open enrollment until the end of 2014.
