CMS: Small Business Facing Higher Health Costs

Per the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS):

The report concluded that about 65% of small businesses, or plans covering 11 million people, would see an increase in insurance premiums under these so-called community-rating provisions of the health law. About 35% of employers would see a decrease for plans covering six million people.

Obamacare provisions meant to lower costs are actually raising them. For this law, that sounds about right.
