There's been no -- controversial piece of legislation over the last few years then president Obama's Health Care Reform as you all.
Well no there have been many lawsuits filed regarding it trying to reverse -- -- it now small business owners are apparently.
Trying to take some action themselves -- Rogers -- foxbusiness.com.
Is here with some details on this so.
And how many businesses and -- what are they -- did.
-- businesses across six different states and they are taking the government to task by what.
They consider to be an illegal expansion by the IRS of the employer mandate portion of obamacare -- which is basically it is that the Supreme Court said it is attacks is is is -- we're talking about it.
This employer mandate is that 2000 dollar penalty they're calling it -- employee per year you're a business owner with fifteen employees are more.
Full time and you don't offer them health care and some see that paying that -- will be cheaper than actually offering them the full ride of health care.
But it won't be the argument against those businesses providing health care for their employees and -- I guess.
The at the the I -- all know on the democratic side is that.
This is exactly the point we won't the businesses to provide health care.
Rather have these people -- people flooding emergency rooms all the time costing us billions of dollars -- Exactly will this lawsuit alleges that that IRS did this illegally because their states don't have state sponsored health care exchanges.
They're saying we don't have state -- exchanges why should we be paying this Mandy and subsidizing care for people throughout the country.
Who cannot afford it because -- is your state doesn't have an exchange does -- mean you can access health care you can still buy it through federal exchange you -- -- you put into place by 2014 I.
So what are the business is saying about the actual effect this will have on the bottom line.
Well I spoke to several of the plaintiffs in -- really obviously heated about this -- -- strongly and it may even reach the Supreme Court level.
PJ -- -- he's a business owner across Texas he has about eleven restaurants.
And he told me that he believes were turning into a part time reality -- obamacare if this thing is -- torn down.
He has had to drop his workers' hours from forty hours a week for full time employees to 28.
He cannot afford to offer them health care he said he actually is fighting this on behalf of his employee I've been doing think.
A lot more small businesses are likely to join this action and he was saying in six states right now which means in 44 states that know me.
Is it been easy gathering pace.
It actually is and actually 33 states have chosen not to set up these exchanges and so there's definitely some room there for more -- to join the fight and the government has sixty days to respond and they have to respond bylaw and once they do this will be -- -- Washington DC district court.
All right very interesting and you have more on this up folks this is -- -- primarily on our small business center there all right do we have the pace there it is small business owner on AB CA that government.
Like -- -- -- from folks' business on congress to see your Basil he's.
