Clinton pitches health plan to small business owners WASHINGTON (AP) — President Clinton pitched his healthcare reform plan to skeptical small business owners Tuesday and said that while employers will have to help foot the bill, his plan won't be as tough as many of them fear. "Everybody's bills will be lower over the long run if everyone makes a fair contribution," Clinton told members of the National Federation of Independent Business. The group, most of whose members are small businesses, has been sharply critical of some of the president's likely health reforms, especially any move to require that all employers provide insurance for their workers. Clinton's advisers say the plan is likely to impose either a payroll tax or a flat, per-person charge on employers — or some mix of the two — to help finance workers' health coverage. The plan, once scheduled to come out in May, now is expected to be released in September. In his speech to the federation, ..

One employer, Melinda Layf ield of Layfield Drafting Services in Florence, S.C., told Clinton, "The business is out there for me to expand. However, mandated health care and the present uncertainty has caused me not to hire more people." Clinton responded, "First of all, I think you ought to wait and see what we come out with. I think that most people believe that this plan will be much tougher on small businesses than I believe it will be." But Clinton said that all workers and their employers should have to pay something for health coverage. Clinton got a polite but skeptical reception from the federation, which is organizing a letter-writing campaign among its 600,000 members against employer mandates for health coverage. By JOHN CUNNIFF The Associated Press There is an inflation that does not go by that name but which pinches and stresses household budgets in the same way as price increases. It is called taxes. Taxes — local, state, federal — have inflated nearly 400 percent since 1960 (that's after discounting for the better-known price inflation), jumping from a total of $675 billion in the earlier year to $2.5 trillion. Averaged out, says economist Stephen Moore, it means government spending per household has risen from $12,790 in 1960 to more than $23,000 today. Delving into the past and using the same measuring stick — that is, dollars of comparable value — reveals that in 1930 federal, state and local government expenditures amounted to only $99 billion, and in 1900 to only $26 billion. Those figures are now likely to rise even more, since the Senate and House have passed separate tax increase measures which somehow seem destined to be merged into an agreement that will get President Clinton's signature. Oddly, while the Senate and House were busy with their business, some of the economic community was worried more about the sort of inflation that is better known, that kind reflected in producer and consumer prices. Their worries were overdone, because the official rates for the past 12 months through May came in at just 2 percent for the Producer Price Index and 3.2 percent for the Consumer Price Index, both less than anticipated. To some extent, the explanation for the concern is that financial people are accustomed to measuring price inflation, the great destroyer of economies in the past. Their work is made easier by those measuring sticks. Since 1920, the Consumer Price Index has grown at a compound annual rate of about 3.1 percent, but it has been subject to great extremes, rising 18.2 percent in 1946, and declining 10.3 percent in 1932. The worst 10-year period was in the years 1973 through 1982, when the CPI rose 8.7 percent a year for a total of 130 percent. Those were terrible years — nightmare years —for people with savings or living on fixed incomes. For some members of the taxpaying community, many of whom feel as great a level of financial insecurity as did savers in the 1970s, so is a 400 percent increase in taxes over a 30-year period. The threat of price inflation is almost always known because it is measured each and every month and eagerly awaited by the media. The measurements, the CPI and PPI among them, are well known to most people. No such popular, sharply delineated index measures the ascent or descent of taxes. Instead, popular judgments often are made on the basis of political rhetoric, much of it discounted by listeners as polemical. There are less well-known indexes, such as those showing taxes per person aren't rising much in relation to growing population, but then one wonders what happened to the efficiencies of scale. Shouldn't the rate be falling? One compiler of price and tax statistics simply combines tax increases and price increases into one measurement. Sindlinger & Co. of Wallingford, Pa., compiles what it calls the Sindlinger Cost of Living Index. In the week ended June 17, for example, that index was up 9.07 percent from the same week a year earlier, nearly triple the CPI rate. Sindlinger includes local, state and federal taxes, and some insurance costs not in the CPI.
