Senator Johanns e-Update
Sept. 23, 2010

Today marks the six month anniversary of the health care law being signed by President Obama, and every day we learn more about the real consequences of this bad policy. In addition to the 1099 tax paperwork mandate I am working to repeal, a whole host of new consequences have come to light since the bill narrowly passed Congress. For example, analysis now shows that more than half of workers may lose their employer-sponsored health insurance plans by 2013. Additionally, insurance companies are raising their rates up to 9 percent nationwide, specifically attributing the hike to the new law.

Even more alarming for seniors, new reports show that those on Medicare Advantage will lose approximately $800 dollars in benefits each year, and nearly one million people on the popular program will be forced to change their plans. These are just some of the many examples of the negative consequences that we have learned about since the health care law was signed by the President. We knew it was bad policy well before the ink was dry, and six months later it is clearer than ever.

Johanns: Small Business Bill Misses Critical Opportunity, Includes Additional 1099 Mandates

U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) expressed his disappointment today following Senate passage of the Small Business Lending bill.

"This bill is not the right approach to help small businesses and create jobs," Johanns said. "My colleagues rejected a critical opportunity to help our job creators by eliminating a tax paperwork mandate in the health care law. You would think lawmakers would have learned from the chorus of discontent they heard about that mandate, but apparently not. Astonishingly, this bill slaps a new paperwork mandate on certain property owners at a time when we have a depressed real estate market and a slew of foreclosures. This is just one more example of how tone-deaf this Congress and Administration have been to the concerns of our job creators."


• The Small Business Jobs Act included a provision that would require taxpayers who receive rental income from real property and incur expenses equal to or greater than $600 per tax year to file information returns with the IRS and with their vendors.
