    Six years into his time in office, President Barack Obama rarely has been able to claim Republican support. But at a hearing of the House Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday, it was the GOP, not Democrats, who roundly supported giving Obama more authority. Specifically, Republicans seek to give Obama “fast track” authority that will allow him to send trade-agreement proposals to Congress for a simple “yes or no” vote with no amendments. Past presidents beginning with Richard Nixon have been able... Read more

    With Ohio gearing up to expand Medicaid coverage and nearly 1 million more people expected to have health insurance through the Affordable Care Act in the next five years, patients across the state might wait longer to see a doctor. In some cases, “We’re already finding wait times in Columbus, Ohio, to see a primary-care physician of two, three, four months,” said Dr. Randy Wexler, an Ohio State University family-medicine professor speaking for the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians. Dr. Steven G... Read more

    More than 100 businesses that are members of the Mansfield-Richland Area Chamber of Commerce may need to shop for a new health insurance plan for their employees, as the nation’s new health care plan draws nearer its Jan. 1 launch. Federal rules, under the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare), call for health insurance to be offered either directly by employers, or for workers at a company to go to health insurance exchanges to obtain coverage on their own. But “association plans” that... Read more

    When Trader Joe's announced it was dropping health benefits for part-time workers, it reassured them that they'd be no worse off as a result. "We believe that with the $500 from Trader Joe's and the tax credits available under the (Affordable Care Act), many of you should be able to obtain health care coverage at very little if any net cost to you," noted CEO Dan Bane in a memo to employees revealed this week. In other words, Trader Joe's — like some other companies — has decided to shift its he... Read more

    Sinclair Community College will cut the hours that can be worked by part-time employees and adjunct professors to avoid a looming change in federal law that could require the college to provide those workers health insurance. Sinclair’s Board of Trustees on Tuesday approved a policy limiting part-time employees to 28 hours per week, down from 30, and restricting adjunct faculty to 11 credit hours in a semester, down from 14, according to Sinclair. The change will ensure that part-time workers w... Read more

    WASHINGTON — The House of Representatives will spend 15% less on its own operations this year than it did three years ago under a cost-cutting effort launched by Speaker John Boehner that is on pace to save taxpayers more than $400 million by the end of this year When Republicans took control of the House in January 2011, Boehner, the new speaker, said cutting House spending would be a priority. Since then, House lawmakers have seen a nearly 20% decrease in their office budgets. Three years ago... Read more

    Some medical-device companies faced with a new tax meant to help finance the health law are hoping someone else will pick up the tab: their hospital customers. Companies including feeding-tube supplier Applied Medical Technology Inc. and respiratory-valve maker Hans Rudolph Inc. quietly added new surcharges or warned hospitals of price increases to cover the new 2.3% tax on device sales that went into effect Jan. 1, according to letters and invoices from nine manufacturers sent to hospitals that...

    Sales at Automation Systems LLC, a parts-assembly factory in the Chicago suburbs, dropped 60% following the 2008 financial collapse. Owner Carl Schanstra was able to get the firm back on its feet by breaking into new markets, such as the auto industry. Sales are up 12% this year, and are likely to rise again next year, too. But for the 34-year-old, the expected growth in sales brings a new concern. He is worried that as Automation Systems continues to expand, it will be subject to a provision in... Read more

    The future of the U.S. tax code will ultimately be determined by the president and a handful of top leaders on Capitol Hill. But when it comes to a small slice of the emerging tax overhaul effort — the House’s effort to pare back a perennial package of business and personal tax breaks — the man to talk to is currently a low-profile congressman from Galena, Ohio. Hardly a marquee name, Pat Tiberi, the chairman of the House Ways and Means panel’s Select Revenue Subcommittee, is nonetheless becomin... Read more
