Barack on the Economy

He's very clear about where he stands on economic solutions. If one more small business person tells me Democrats are bad for business I'm going to scream. It is categorically untrue and not based on fact. Republicans are bad for your business because all they care about is the super-wealthy corporations and government staying out of the way while they run roughshod over us. Regulation keeps things from melting down like they did in 1929 and are starting to now. TRICKLE DOWN ECONOMICS DOES NOT WORK. It only consolidates power and money to a select few. Additionally, it does not help small businesses. It hurts them. Period. It helps corporations. If you want to work for MegaWalMartGEHalliburton, Inc. then I guess trickle down makes sense. If you want to work for yourself, get your head out of your ass and support economic policies that keep corporations in check so other people can compete.

Obama wants to eliminate capital gains taxes for small business and start-ups. Sounds good to me.

    What do they all have in common? I'd love to try that one on a small businessperson.
