Healthcare, the economy

I am always pleasantly surprised and amazed at the resilience of the small business in our area. It is eye opening to realize how many small businesses exist.
All you have to do is drive up and down every street in every town and you can view them on virtually every corner. They are evident in building after building, with office, retail, repair shops and service centers. As a small businessman, I can certainly identify with the issues of hundreds of small businesses.
According to the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the top problem facing small businesses is Healthcare. It is one of those "fixed" costs that you must include and even if you don't have it you can still have access to it.
