Obama Encourages Health Reform For Job Increases

October 3, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – President Obama has said that health care reform could lead to more jobs, as people it would allow people to leave large companies to begin their own small businesses without fear of losing their family’s benefits.

“Reforming our health insurance system will be a critical step in rebuilding our economy so that our entrepreneurs can pursue the American dream again and our small businesses can grow and expand and create new jobs again,” Obama said in his weekly radio address this morning.

The statement follows another increase in the country’s unemployment rate, which has now reach the highest point since the early 1980’s, at 9.8%.

However, the amount of jobs reported lost is continuing to slow down, with less than the 700,000+ lost per month earlier this year.

President Obama hopes that easier and cheaper access to benefits will create more small businesses, which will create new employment opportunities outside of currently large businesses, and allow other small businesses to expand by allowing them the chance to increase hiring.
