6 in 10 employers hope health care reform will be repealed

<p> A new Market Strategies International national study, Health Care Reform 360, reveals attitudes and worries employers have about health care reform.</p> <p> The full study is available to purchase, but released findings reveal that:</p> <ul> <li> Sixty-two percent of employers hope health care reform is repealed</li> <li> Twenty-nine percent are strongly in favor of repeal</li> <li> While it has been touted as a cost-saver for employers, 72 percent do not believe reform will reduce their company&rsquo;s health care cost burden</li> <li> Sixty-three percent disagree that it will make their company more viable in attracting and retaining employees</li> </ul> <p> &ldquo;However, seven in ten believe some parts of health care reform should stay in place and 58 percent believe reform was long overdue,&rdquo; said Susan McIntyre, senior vice president of Marketing Strategies&rsquo; Healthcare Division. &ldquo;This suggests that while most employers do not support the law as it is currently written, there is support for some aspects of the law.&rdquo;</p>
