Small Business Owners & COSE Talk Health Care Reform with President

President Barack Obama is getting input from entrepreneurs, the self-employed and small business owners as he works on changes for the nation’s health care system. One small business organization is taking part in discussions on health care reform. The Council of Smaller Enterprises, or COSE, for short is participating in a town hall meeting with Obama scheduled for Cleveland, Ohio.

The Obama administration has asked COSE to bring a contingent of small business owners to the event prepared to discuss how the health care coverage issue is impacting their business as well as their reaction to his reform plan.

COSE is one of Ohio’s largest small business support organizations, striving to help small businesses grow and maintain their independence.  Comprised of more than 17,000 member companies, COSE has a long history of fighting for the rights of all small business owners, whether it’s through group purchasing programs for health care, workers’ compensation, or energy, advocating for specific changes in legislation or regulation to benefit small business, or providing a forum and resource for small businesses to connect with and learn from each other.

Steve Millard, COSE’s president & executive director has authored an opinion piece from COSE on the current version of the Health Care Reform Plan.  The opinion piece can be found at
