Portman Responds to Health Care Questions via Twitter and Facebook: Question #1

First Question: With health insurance renewals at our company, we have experienced a 42% increase in our premiums. This has never happened before and I have to imagine that a good portion of this is in preparation for what lies ahead. It slows us from hiring more people, as we need to, but the unexpected burden costs of additional employees are unknown. I fear business is going to be paying for a good part of this bill.
