Obama is doing nothing to help small businesses and they are failing in droves. Soon everyone will be working for big corporations or the govt, which really is the ultimate goal of the modern socialist. Makes keeping tabs on and controlling the populace much much easier. I would add that the Democratic Party seeks to constantly enlarge the number of people dependent on the government for something, now to include health care. People who rely on the gubmint for their livelihoods and services are easy to control and vote overwhelmingly for Democrats. It's the independent, self-sufficient, real Americans, the pioneers and entrepreneurs who built this country, that must be destroyed. Their way of life grants no power to the collectivist, statist, or socialist. But enough ranting. Obama made several campaign promises specifically around helping small businesses. He has yet to keep a single one of them. Are there any other small business owners here who are disgusted that Obama signed the so-called "Bail-out Bill", (Which BTW was chock full of earmarks, yes the same earmarks he promised not to include when he was campaigning) and failed to include even a single one of the small business benefits that he promised?? So lets hear it, any other small business owners in the house?
