Small Business Storm Warning

According to SurePayroll, a lot of small employers may drop their group health plans in the next year or so:
According to a survey commissioned by the online payroll service provider, a little over half of the nation's small businesses currently offer some kind of group health benefit, and a little over half of those pay the lion's share of the premiums (okay, they really don't, but that's another post.
One quibble: they don't define a "small business;" could be 2 people, could be 100.
Something else that showed up: of those small employers who don't currently offer a plan, more than half indicate that they may offer one next year.
