Where in the World is John Boehner?

 

Ohio's unemployment rate is 11.1 percent.

 

Americans are debating the America's Affordable Health Choices Act which would provide significant benefits to Minority Leader John Boehner (OH-08)'s district:

 

  • Nearly 12,000 Ohio small businesses could receive tax credits to provide heath care coverage to their employees.

 

  • 7,700 seniors would avoid the donut hole of prescription drug coverage in Medicare Part D.

 

  • 1,400 families could avoid bankruptcy each year due to their health care bills.

 

  • Hospitals and other health care providers would get $50 million each year in care for the uninsured, which we pay for ourselves now through higher insurance and health care costs.
