Obama's call to reduce health care costs for small businesses

Here's a health care stimulus plan for small business that costs very little.  Allow small businesses to pay their own way to participate in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program.  If the small business pays the Government's part of the premium and the small business employee pays the Federal employee's part of the premium, both parties can benefit from the bargaining power of the Federal Government at no additional cost to the taxpayer except for minimal additional program oversight.  

This also allows the Executive Branch to put our money where our mouth is when we encourage small business to partner with the Federal Government.
