3 Things You Should Know About Small Business: June 28
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- What's happening in small business today?
1. Obamacare survives Supreme Court. It's time for small business owners to hit the Obamacare books because the law is not going away.
The controversial health care law brought before the U.S. Supreme Court by 26 states and several advocacy groups has been upheld in a ruling announced Thursday, according to TheStreet's political reporter Joe Deaux.
Chief Justice John Roberts joined the liberal wing of the court to uphold the entirety of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in a 5-4 decision.
The court ruled that the individual mandate survived as a tax. The Medicaid provision was limited but not invalidated, according to SCOTUSblog.com.
Studies have shown small business owners to be uneducated on the comprehensive health care reform.
2. Small-business owners need to follow these influential people on Twitter. Dun & Bradstreet Credibility released its second-annual "Top 50 Most Influential Small Business People on Twitter," which measures the influence of Tweets covering small business issues.
"There's a wonderful mix of people who are strategists, consultants, authors, speakers, coaches and small business owners on the list this year," said Dun & Bradstreet's director of social media Dustin Luther. "For a small business owner looking to develop an effective online marketing strategy for their business, there's so much to be learned from these people."
