President Obama’s State of the Union address this evening called out expanded 1099 reporting rules – addressed earlier in this blog – as a health care reform measure he would be happy to see set aside.

The President stood up strongly, however, for elimination of pre-existing condition exclusion rules, which is a measure that would survive the “repeal and replace” process underway in the House of Representatives. The President’s final word on PPACA was to “fix what needs fixing and move forward.”
