The National Federation of Independent Businesses reported that small business owners optimism for the economy was down 1.3 points to 89.5 in March, the first time confidence has dropped since November of last year. The NFIB also says that while actual hiring by small businesses has increased slightly, long term hiring plans have come to a virtual halt. Adding to concerns is the health care issue. The Obama administration says they will delay until 2015 parts of a program intended to help small businesses provide affordable healthcare. And some owners are saying they will pay the federal penalty for not providing health care saying that would be less expensive for them. Jean Card, the Vice-President of Media and Communications at the NFIB and John Arensmeyer, Chief Executive of the Small Business Majority join us to talk about these issues.
