Rubio Discusses Impact of Affordable Care Act on Businesses
Senator Marco Rubio was in Gainesville Monday to talk with local businesses about the Affordable Healthcare Act.
At UF, Senator Bill Nelson was a part of the unveiling of the new UF health complex.
This evening, Senator Rubio attended a roundtable discussion with the Gainesville area Chamber of Commerce.
He met with business owners to discuss the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and its impact on businesses.
"What we heard today from small businesses in North Central Florida, in Gainesville is that they are in a period of tremendous uncertainty. They are afraid to invest in the future; they are afraid to grow their businesses; they are afraid to hire new people. In fact, some of them may have to move people from full time work to part time work," said Senator Rubio.
The goal of the discussion was to give an opportunity to Gainesville business leaders to meet with a national policymaker and learn how the Affordable Care Act may have an impact them.
