Jonathan Beeton, Communications Director for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, responded to a previous post from a South Florida businessman facing a 78 percent jump in his health insurance costs:
Mr. Friedman’s case is a very good example of someone who
will benefit immediately from the new health reform legislation passed by
Congress and signed into law by the President. As a small business
owner, he’ll receive a tax credit for up to 35% of his business’s cost for
health insurance –and this takes place this year.
The Congresswoman apologizes that if when Mr. Friedman wrote to her in 2002 he did not get a response, she certainly always strives to respond to the families she represents.
