"We are committed to reducing costs in the health care system and expanding health care coverage for the industry's workforce," she said. "However, we are extremely concerned that the health care bill that passed today will impose tremendous burdens on America's restaurants and hurt our industry's ability to create and sustain jobs."We will continue to look for every opportunity and explore every avenue to create jobs, strengthen the economy and protect the restaurant industry as this legislation moves forward to the Senate, as well as in the regulatory process. We will ask the Senate to address the protections for small businesses when they take up the reconciliation provisions. In particular, we call on them to address the provisions regarding part-time workers, which will directly impact the creation of jobs during this critical time for our country."
