Congress Passes Bill Easing Small Business Health Law Rules
New York Times

Congress approved bipartisan legislation Thursday aimed at preventing premium increases that some smaller businesses were expecting next year under President Barack Obama’s health care law.

The measure, which Obama is expected to sign, represents an uncommon instance in which both parties have rallied behind an effort to revamp part of Obama’s signature health care overhaul. Most congressional efforts to retool the statute have been Republican drives to repeal it or scale it back that Democrats have blocked.
