Health care and small businesses

The Virginia Main Street Alliance will host a discussion tomorrow morning for small business owners interested in learning more about health care law and how it affects them.  The hourlong seminar and breakfast will be held at Eileen’s Bakery at 1115 Caroline Street in Fredericksburg from 8-9 a.m.

The allliance is a coalition of small business owners affiliated with Virginia Organizing, a Charlottesville-based group that supports the health care reform act President Obama signed into law in 2010. The US Supreme Court is currently weighing the legality of that law.

Over the past year, alliance members have reached out to business owners statewide to promote the benefits — such as tax credits — of the health care act. You can learn more about the alliance and its views on health care reform at
