Bush hears from OK small businesses on health savings accounts
The Oklahoman, September 17, 2008
President Bush expressed concern that the U.S. healthcare system is "drifting toward nationalization" in opening remarks at a forum on health savings accounts. Bush heard from seven Oklahoma women who are small business owners during the one-hour forum, each of which described her experiences with the innovative health savings accounts. The accounts allow employees to build tax-free accounts that are used to pay for medical costs and follow them when they change jobs.
