"The author of the study, William Dennis, said during a conference call with reporters that the law was dissuading business owners from more fully engaging in the national economic recovery because they were bogged down by premium costs and were wary of compliance costs and taxes associated with the health care reform.

“They are not in a position to do the kinds of things — invest, raise wages — the kinds of things we would hope for after a recession,” he said. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which is the primary agency directing the health care reform rollout, did not respond to a request for comment.

Clients of Group Management Services, a human resources administrator for 650 businesses mostly in Ohio, dealt with increases that were “much higher” this year than in years past, according to Beth Kohmann, the company’s vice president of benefits. The company expects small-group health insurance premiums will increase by 71 percent in Ohio next year."
