The election is days away and the big issue on the minds of voters, after jobs and the economy, is health care reform. Gov. Mitt Romney, the Republican Party candidate for president, has pledged throughout his campaign to repeal the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, if elected. That’s music to the ears of a lot of small business owners in Craig and Moffat County who have raised concerns since Romney’s campaign stop in May about potential rate hikes for employee health insurance under the Act.
