WASHINGTON, July 18, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Latino Coalition (TLC), the leading national non-partisan advocacy organization representing Hispanic businesses and consumers, issued the following statement regarding health bill collapse:
"Inaction on health care is deeply disappointing, particularly for the self-employed, who are burdened with the highest health-insurance premiums," said Hector Barreto, The Latino Coalition Chairman and former U.S. Small Business Administrator. "For several years, small business owners have been struggling under a burdensome regulation and unaffordable costs. We need action, and we need action now! Congress must work together to restore the confidence of the vital small-business sector by taking action — if not on health care, then on tax reform."
