ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. automakers are silent as lobbyists for car dealers and automobile workers oppose the 1.1 trillion dollars health care bill, passed by the House. The National Automobile Dealers Association and American International Automobile Dealers Association have joined a small-business coalition to oppose the bill. The coalition has cited the legislation's requirements that employers provide coverage and the measure's imposition of a tax penalty on employers that don't.
