The article discusses the impact of health care reform in small businesses. It is stated that while health care is laudable, many people are concerned on possible higher premiums due to the coverage of previously excluded persons who have pre-existing conditions, but that most will favor coverage because of its reasonable cost and the gaining of tax credits. Health reform will reportedly also reduce a plan's cost in the small group market.
