I am a small-business owner, and I read the article on rising health care costs facing the state (Page A1, March 4). I am amazed that Massachusetts has a cap of 3.6 percent on increases in health care costs. Over the past two years, my health care premium alone went up 76 percent. I would be thrilled with a 3.6 percent hike, and was wondering where it went.
