NRA part of 'Stop the HIT' effort

Among other changes to the 2010 health care bill, the National Restaurant Association supports efforts by U.S. lawmakers to repeal a new health insurance tax (HIT) that in 2014 will be imposed on health insurance companies based on net premiums written in the fully insured market.

Because the vast majority of small businesses buy insurance in the fully insured market, the NRA believes it's likely most of the tax will end up being passed along to small businesses and their employees.

The NRA has teamed up with business groups representing millions of other small employers in a "Stop the HIT" coalition to block the tax.

Sens. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) this month introduced S. 1880, the "Jobs and Premium Protection Act," to repeal the tax. Their bill mirrors H.R. 1370, a House bill that now has nearly 80 cosponsors. The NRA supports both bills and is working with the Stop the HIT coalition to line up more cosponsors.
