Nov. 20, 2009: CONGRESSMEN RYAN STATEMENT ON REPORT OF SAVINGS IN HEALTH CARE REFORM FOR EMPLOYERS
“I’m pleased by the recent reports that affirm the cost savings of health care reforms for employers. With reform, small businesses can save as much as $855 billion and up to $3,000 per employee within 10 years. The changes will benefit 12,300 small businesses in Ohio’s 17th Congressional District.
This is not left wing propaganda. These are facts from our nation’s top business leaders. While the critics are spreading myths and working to demonize support for reform, top CEOs in the country and thousands of small businesses are saying this will save them money. The fact is that this reform will reduce strangling health care costs on employers and the freed up capital can be reinvested into new technology, new equipment and higher wages. This is exactly the prescription for long term growth in jobs and wages.”
