Retail Associations United in Opposition to Health Care Overhaul
Associations representing the retail industry were united in their opposition to the historic healthcare legislation that President Barack Obama signed into law Tuesday. The bill, HR 3590, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, is expected to expand health insurance coverage to most Americans by 2014. It was passed by the Senate on Christmas Eve and given final approval by the House on Sunday. “Congress has embarked on a dangerous, anti-job experiment in the midst of the worst economy our nation has seen in decades,” said NRF senior VP for government relations Steve Pfister.
