According to your website, you already offer insurance to your full-time employees. Please explain in detail what exactly about the ACA is going to make that more difficult to do.

And, although the reimbursement rate may be $7.17 per hour, it is deceptive to compare this to minimum wage as your staff/patient ratio - even including doctors and therapists and social workers and janitorial staff and administrative staff and everyone else - is not 1:1. Even if your staff/patient ratio were as high as 1:5 (which is unheard of), you have an annual reimbursement of just over $313,000 to pay that one staff member as well as cover food, medicine, room, medical equipment, etc.

So again, keeping in mind what your website says about your business model and how much you care for your employees, please explain in exact details how the ACA is going to negatively impact you.
