by Andrew Mangione – AMAC is pleased to announce its support for another piece of important legislation, the “American Job Protection Act.” Introduced by Rep. Charles Boustany (R-LA), H.R. 903 seeks to repeal the job-killing employer mandate that was instituted by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA or “ObamaCare”). This troubling provision requires businesses with 50 or more full-time employees to provide government-approved health insurance to workers or face a stiff penalty for noncompliance. Consequently, employers are choosing not to hire new workers, while the Federal government perversely dictates how businesses allocate their resources. Recognizing the serious repercussions the employer mandate will continue to have on an economy struggling to create jobs, this critical piece of legislation returns authority to employers and encourages businesses to expand and hire desperate, job-seeking Americans. AMAC firmly believes that small businesses spur American innovation and are essential to sustaining a strong economy. With the delivery of this most recent letter of support, AMAC is proud to formally stand with Rep. Boustany to protect American jobs and generate the economic growth America needs.
