OK, I’ll be the first to admit, I have not read the recent measure which was supposedly going to provide $30 Billion for small business and was stymied by the Republicans in a 58-42 vote this past Thursday. Yet, I have been following the discussion for the past several weeks. What I find interesting is that neither side was willing to find a way to create a program which could help small business and in turn create jobs. We have become so polarized — one side wanting to keep all the Bush tax cuts in place and the other side determined that providing the banks with “incentives” would instantly have them start loaning money to small business that all that gets accomplished is making the political hacks happy. Jeesh. Get real!
