Reaction to "Obamacare" Ruling

Here are responses from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Business Council of NY State and the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce regarding yesterday's ruling.

U.S. Chamber of Commerce statement on SCOTUS health care ruling

Jun 28, 2012

by Bill Stroh

U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue released the following statement today after the Supreme Court issued its ruling upholding the entire health care law as constitutional.

“While we respect the Court’s decision, today’s Supreme Court ruling does not change the reality that the health care law is fundamentally flawed. Left unchanged, it will cost many Americans their employer-based health insurance, undermine job creation, and raise health care costs for all.

“It is imperative that policymakers and the business community now work together to develop and support genuine reforms that control costs, improve access, ensure quality, and promote wellness. These reforms and goals are achievable. The Chamber and the American business community are ready to go to work to enact true health care reform. Given the Court’s decision, the need for action has never been greater.”

The Chamber’s public policy law firm, the National Chamber Litigation Center (NCLC), filed an amicus brief in the case urging the Supreme Court to strike down the entire law if the individual mandate were held unconstitutional. The Chamber did not take a position on the constitutionality of the mandate. To read the Chamber’s amicus brief and the Supreme Court’s opinion, please visit the National Chamber Litigation Center website:

NY impact of Obamacare ruling

Jun 28, 2012

by Bill Stroh

E.J. McMahon

New York is probably less affected than most states by today’s U.S. Supreme Court decision. The court effectively has said that almost all of Affordable Care Act (ACA) passes constitutional muster. This means the entire country can now experience the effects of the sort of regulatory policies (such as guaranteed issue, community rating and mandated coverages) that have done much to make health insurance so costly here, with the added element of a government-administered “exchange” from which people lacking health insurance will be required to buy it (or pay a penalty, effectively redefined by the court as a tax).

In upholding the individual mandate provision, the U.S. Supreme Court also ruled that states can’t be threatened with the loss of all their federal Medicaid funding if they choose not to expand their Medicaid programs along the lines authorized under the Affordable Care Act. But New York already has a more expansive Medicaid program than most — and as a practical matter, given our politics, to the extent the feds are willing to underwrite a further expansion of New York’s program (assuming the ACA survives in the next Congress), we will no doubt happily opt into it.

From MCC Service Provider, Eric Robinson , PSC Insurance

Sad to say but health insurance is a law of numbers, especially in New York. We have community rating where the young and healthy subsidize the older population. This subsidy is becoming increasingly burdensome as both our population ages and healthcare services are experiencing double-digit increases We have a progressive system and have already passed 10 major protections outlined in Obama care into state law. (These protections would have held in the year regardless of what the Supreme Court did).

The below list is insurance reform, not healthcare reform. It closes many of the loopholes that carriers used to not pay claims.

Carriers may not drop patients once they get sick
They must cover children with pre-existing conditions
No annual or lifetime coverage dollar limits for medical benefits or prescription drug coverage
Plans must provide access to OB/GYN care
Birth control is covered on the same basis as men’s health care
Plans must cover preventive care with no co-pays
The insured can choose their primary care doctors and pediatricians (within the network, if there is one)
Same co-pay for emergency room services in or out of network
Parents are able to keep young adults on their plan to age 26

The two biggest changes for New Yorkers are these:

They now will be required to purchase health insurance if the can afford it, or pay a fine if they choose not to.

Basically the Supreme Court defined this fiscal penalty as a tax and we certainly know that Washington knows how to levy taxes.

Insurance carriers will not be able to turn down coverage for adults, even when they have pre-existing medical conditions.

For the 40 states that have not already adopted all of the new requirements, major changes will take place.

More will become clear as the details of this law are worked out, but a lot of interpretation will be involved. 2,800 pages of federal code will become tens of thousands of pages of rules and regulations in 50 different states. It will be fun.

Guidance on Business Customer Bill of Rights Distribution & Customer Feedback Meeting

Update on NYC Regulatory Review Recommendation #3: Establish a Business Owner’s Bill of Rights


Local Law 18 requires the Mayor’s Office of Operations to develop and agencies to disseminate a Business Owner’s Bill of Rights (BoR) before, during, or after an inspection. Many agencies currently distribute the BoR in various inspections and interactions. Operations is developing a renewed distribution effort to increase business owner awareness of the Bill of Rights. There are 1,766 inspectors at 7 agencies that perform 1.7 million inspections a year.
Current Distribution Means by Agencies:

•Central website (
•Card handed out during some inspections (DOHMH, FDNY)
•Link available on agency websites (DCA, DEP, DOB, DOHMH, DOT, FDNY, NBAT, SBS)
•Posters placed in walk-in facilities (DCA, DEP, DOB, DOHMH, FDNY, SBS)
•Fliers handed out at walk-in facilities (DCA, DEP, DOHMH, SBS)
•Fliers handed out during events (DCA, DEP)
•Link added to Bureau of Food Safety Inspector Report which is handed to business owners after an inspection (DOHMH)
•Distributed to industry and trade organizations and BIDs (DCA, DEP)
•Included in agency publications (i.e. agency quarterly newsletters, social media) (DCA, DEP)
Enhanced Efforts (May 2012-present):

Completed Tasks:
•Translated Bill of Rights into Spanish
•Posted Bill of Rights in Spanish on
•Designed and printed new, easier to read signage for walk-in centers, and designed new bilingual palm cards (see page 2)
•Put system in place to regularly review customer survey comments and distribute comments to agencies

Next Steps:
•Provide agencies with new signage for service centers
•Print and distribute bilingual palm cards to agencies
•Develop a standard protocol for agencies outlining when and for which inspections the palm cards should be distributed
•Obtain business industry input on additional information regarding rights that would be helpful
•Obtain business industry input on other potential channels for distribution
•Promote customer survey more widely (see p. 3)
•Redesign DEP online inspection request system to include a pop-up window with the BoR
Newly designed poster and palm card
As a business owner, you have the right to:

1.Courteous and professional treatment by our employees
2.Inspectors who are polite, professionally dressed and properly identified
3.Information about how long inspections will take and the cost of all related fees
4.Knowledgeable inspectors who enforce agency rules uniformly

7 strategies to boost your online sales

7 strategies to boost your online sales

By Joanna L. Krotz

There's really no deep secret about increasing sales through the Internet. You drive traffic by creating more sales leads. When these newbie shoppers show up, you engage them and convert their interest into a transaction. Presto: Better sales.

But all that's much easier said than done. Here are specific ways to build sales momentum and to make your online store crackle and then pop.

1. Seek out strategic partners. Question: What's the online retail equivalent of "location, location, location?" Answer: Links to your site in all the right places. You want to create awareness of your wares among customers. So the first step is to truly define your target buyer. Thoroughly research your customer's profile and preferences. Next, develop come-hither offerings, teasers, interactive ads and must-read content for as many appropriate sites as you can manage and afford. "Small businesses can develop relevant content for other sites that drives traffic on a very low-cost basis," says Andrew Restivo, founder of, a New Orleans-based online shopping mall for more than 150 specialty food companies. In considering sites as partners or affiliates, don't forget professional organizations and associations, especially when you market services or business products. Try trading or paying for links with other small or midsize e-commerce marketers. But before making any deals, verify that your links add value on those sites. For instance, links to your boutique hotel might bring in business from local restaurant sites or a car rental agency or even a local chamber of commerce. But it would make no sense at all on a site selling computers.

2. Keep customers clicking toward the checkout page. Customers won't wade through faulty, bulky or clunky architecture. Broken links or haphazard navigation will only squander your hard-earned sales opportunities. Streamline all site paths and continually check that every click works. Rely on plain, instant gratification (HTML) text links to all products, services, and registration forms. "Graphics and Flash make your site look cool, but without text to encourage search results, customers may never even make it to your home page," says Michelle Jackson, spokesperson for Range Online Media, a Fort Worth, Texas, search marketing company. Also, consider easy ways to get to the shopping cart and reliable site-wide product search functionality. When a shopper arrives with product specifics already in mind, you do not want to make that buyer work or wait.

3. Cross-promote like crazy. Don't make your online store a stand-alone orphan; make it work with other sales channels. Successful sellers have figured out that the Web is just one sales channel, like mail-order catalogs, phone orders, or face-to-face contact. Everything must work together. That means customers being able to research one of your products online, buying it by phone, and picking it up at the offline store. If you only sell online, you must make sure your branded URL is seen far and wide. That includes using it in every e-mail signature of every employee you have. Print the store URL on all brochures, catalogs, packing material, shipping boxes, shopping bags, delivery trucks, posters, and postcard notices. If you attend trade shows or conferences, make sure your booth signage and promotional material also have a big, bold printed URL stamped on them. Don't miss an opportunity. Also, register variants and misspellings of your domain name so customers who get it wrong will find you anyway. For instance, a company named "Baskets R Us" should also register "Baskets Are Us." Think about it: For a few hundred dollars in registration fees, you might net one return customer who buys thousands of dollars worth of wares over time.

4. Keep it personal. Customers will feel more valued and comfortable about buying online if you establish a bond. The more you're in touch and display a personal tone, the more your customer will relax.

5. Be specific (and honest) about your product offerings. "The more detail you include, the better. People like to know the histories of what you're selling and who you are," advises Lynne Dralle, an eBay Power Seller who has sold thousands of items at online auctions. "Always describe exactly what the buyer is getting. Be honest," she says. When selling her collectibles, Dralle mentions any chips or flaws, but she also tells stories, like how her Aunt Mary brought an item over from England. High-quality photographs of products also are a must. If you don't have a digital camera, consider investing in one so you can upload images to your PC.

6. Set delivery policies that work for your business model. The great debate about whether free shipping boosts online sales is finally fading into individual solutions. While you still find advocates pro and con, it's now boiling down to a matter of your product pricing. "Free shipping costs can kill you if you can't include them in the price of the product," says's Restivo, whose company regularly surveys online consumers on such issues. But if you jack up your price to accommodate free shipping on commodity items that only sell at the lowest price possible, you lose. In those cases, customers expect to pay a reasonable amount for shipping, Restivo says. On the other hand, high shipping prices are a big detriment to sales of perishable or premium products, presumably because it's easy to forgo those items when they don't feel like a "bargain." Restivo's tip: Rely on second-day-air shipping. Costs are much cheaper than overnight and customers are satisfied.

7. Spruce up your site and service. The goal is to get customers to return and to spread the word among friends and family that your online shop is worth a visit. So do everything you can to make the experience fast, fun and fabulously better than your competitors. Explain all your policies, upfront. Promise 100% money-back guarantees with no strings attached. Offer free samples. Quickly respond to every query or comment. Invest in a live chat function so that customers can get answers to product questions immediately. Create reasons to return to your site with a loyalty club or contests or email games and discounts. Make connections with customers and don't let go.

One last point: Don't forget that having well-written content and product descriptions are important—because you want the search engines to find you. Learn how to optimize your site for search engines.

Next thing you know, the sales will start rolling in.

5 common e-commerce site mistakes

5 common e-commerce site mistakes

By Monte Enbysk
So you're planning to sell your products on the Web. Know that it's not enough that your graphics are sharp, your content is fun and easy to read, and your online catalog is pretty darn spiffy.
Your overall site design and infrastructure count, too.
How fast do your pages load? How navigable is your site? What about server capacity and browser compatibility?
Brent Melson is a senior technical designer for NTSL (National Software Testing Labs), a Philadelphia-area company, who makes his living testing Web site architectures and related Internet technologies. Here are his five most-common e-commerce site boo-boos.
1. Too many dynamic pages that take valuable seconds to load."Dynamic" pages are those with changing content processed in real time from application servers and other Web servers. Dynamic content often encompasses links to databases that aren't part of the Web site — for updates in news headlines, stock quotes and sports scores — or ad blocks in which advertiser messages revolve through each time a new user hits the site. For the most part, dynamic content is trendy, popular and valued by most Web users. But too much of it on pages, or spread over too many pages, can slow your site down, unless you have some of the more sophisticated Web software used by larger Internet and e-commerce sites. Pages that take several seconds to load generally send users to other sites. Melson argues that smaller e-commerce sites should confine their dynamic content to a certain number of pages, and make many or most of their Web pages "static," or without continuously changing content. And they should limit dynamic content to windows or certain portions of mostly static pages. It is particularly important, he says, to keep your home page and many of your intro pages as static as possible. The deeper a user gets into your site, the more likely he or she is to tolerate pages taking longer to load (though some would even dispute this)."It is really a design issue," he says. "It is easier for many businesses to make their Web pages dynamic. Most sites need dynamic pages. But there are performance issues with them. That's what Web operators need to keep in mind."
2. Overestimating concurrent traffic — and spending too much as a result.Most tech writers like me tell you to plan your site for peak traffic periods, especially those that occur in the last-minute buying frenzy before the December holidays. Melson, however, says the term "concurrent" is frequently misunderstood by Web operators. It doesn't mean number of customers overall, or even site traffic in a day, but rather the number of users converging on a site simultaneously. Too often, he says, Web operators pay thousands of dollars more for server space and related software because they have been too generous in their estimates on concurrent traffic."If you aim high and have an unlimited hardware budget, it's not going to be a big deal. But if you don't have an unlimited budget, my advice is to think realistically about the number of people you will have using the site at any one time. "Alexis Gutzman, an e-business author and consultant, cautions that spikes do occur for many e-tailers around Dec. 12 or so (one of the last days you can ship packages long distances to arrive before Dec. 25). "In my experience, many people don't overestimate. They fail to plan for the peak," she says.
3. No consideration of resolving performance issues with software rather than buying new hardware. When performance bottlenecks occur, many Web operators quickly conclude it's a hardware problem — and rush to buy a new server or two to add more capacity. That's often a mistake, Melson says. "In our experience, about 70% of the time it's a software issue and 30% of the time it's a hardware problem. But instead of thinking about how they can fix or redesign their software, they throw more hardware at it."It may be a case of simply rewriting the software or adding new application software, he says. Perhaps they need to buy more memory for their database server, rather than buying a new server. Often the software solution is cheaper and quicker to implement, he says (although hardware currently is as cheap as it has been in some time).The difficulty here, Melson acknowledges, is that small businesses don't have information technology (IT) staffs or the time and money to diagnose infrastructure problems and/or rewrite software. Most businesses should have an IT consultant or trusted value-added reseller (VAR) to advise them, however.
4. Not making the site compatible with more than one Web browser. If you had to choose one browser to support, it would be Microsoft Internet Explorer, the dominant browser with more than 80% of the market. "But what about the Apple Macintosh customer — do you want to turn him away?" Melson asks. How about the Firefox or Chrome user ? If not, you need to test your site and system with the other browsers. Some tweaking of the user interface is likely to ensure tables, charts, graphics, and functionality work well on the different browsers."Often these are very simple or minor fixes. You might need to only change some colors, or add new elements. If you don't ever look at your site on other Web browsers, you won't ever know that you need to fix it," he says.Supporting more than a single browser is more important for an online retailer than a B2B company, Melson says, because a retailer's customers are more random. But if you don't feel it is important, he says, you should put a disclaimer on your site noting that it supports — or works best with — only one particular browser.
5. Failure to get outside feedback on usability. "Usability" is now more than a buzzword. It has emerged as a significant metric for how Web sites are viewed today. Usability surveys, usability tests, usability scores, and usability focus groups are all part of the research and development of most large Web sites. Melson's finding is that many smaller e-commerce operators don't get usability feedback from anyone beyond those on their development team. But those developers and others are too close to the process and biased toward the chosen design and infrastructure. "You get used to your site and used to any foibles."For small businesses, organizing a focus group to evaluate your Web site is beyond your time and resources. But getting some sort of outside perspective — be it employees not involved in the design, or your spouses or friends — is crucial to the site's development and performance. "You need to hear from people who aren't working on it."
