State political blog Blue Oregon featured this morning an opinion piece from OSBC Action Team member Nancie Koerber of Champions Realtime Training in Central Point about the importance of health care reform for small business owners.

The most important thing I learned from the trip is that Capitol Hill is like an anthill crawling with little worker ants. Most of them were very high paid lobbyists. They get their voice heard by constantly being there and offering campaign contributions and fact-impaired data to persuade our leaders. It is imperative that we continue to have our voices heard.
