It's a lot to take in,,,, that's for sure.... I did learn that if I join my chamber of commerce ($180.00/yr) they offer some sort of discounted health insurance for small business. Don't have many details as of yet though..

I think there are many newer entrepreneurs who can't believe how much of a battle it can be to get started and that there should be an easier way. But the reality of it seems there are a lot more risks to get started than meets the eye initially.

What's your view on this?
Im my area there 2 LCO carry worksman comp out of 18 LCO
What I dont like is most them does Commercial jobs
If I have pay for it then any company that I hire should pay for it Right
Some Business around here stop asking for it so that drove the mowing prices down
Wish they make a state law If you have a Business you have to have it
Or if have a business and you hire out You have ask for it
Everybody tells me my price on mowing is high tell them if you have pay what I do Yours will be high to
But around here I do have goverment, School, City, Big factory Jobs You have to have it to bid on them jobs So I that market to make money in

I have to disagree. There are already too many taxes and laws prohibiting job creation. We don't need more.

I have no health insurance. In the future, I'm more likely to get on my girlfriend's (a teacher) health insurance rather than buy my own.

Do you feel this all has changed much since Obamacare was enacted?

Everything has changed for the worse since Obama was enacted. But then, it's just more $hit rolling downhill as it always has.
