Monster readers know that I am an unapologetic capitalist that is NOT ON STEROIDS like Goldman Sachs, Citibank, or GE. I owned a successful small business for ten years starting at age 24 and was actually looking forward to doing it again. Now? Not so much.
I have spent months watching the previous administration cripple, and now Barack Obama’s administration bludgeon to death, the small business owner who by the way, is the middle class taxpayer.
If you go all the way back to 2006 when the housing bubble was starting to pop, I was right there in the line of fire getting my hours at work cut because I worked for a small business contractor in new construction starts. As the years have progressed, we have seen everything but what really needed to happen; a floor needed to be put under the housing market so that the average American wouldn’t be going bankrupt in an upside down mortgage, getting ready to be foreclosed on, and cutting back on their spending which started the whole economic collapse rolling.
DID THE BUSH ADMINSTRATION HELP SMALL BUSINESS AND THE MIDDLE CLASS? Oh yeah, that’s right…that $600 or $900 ended up going to paying off debt because Americans saw what was coming and were desperately trying to get back in the black as fast as possible.
Did anybody stop the foreclosures and give homeowners some “trust” and peace of mind while trying to push the boulder up the hill? Nope.
Did anybody give small business and their employees a payroll tax holiday to stabilize the housing market and the economy? Nope.
Has anybody but us average Americans figured out that bailing out the big guys would only help the big guys?
I could go on and on and on, but the point is that the Progressive Democratic Socialist Party and the Progressive Republican Socialist Party are creating the poor and the ultra rich – and have been doing so since Teddy Roosevelt.
WAKE THE *(^$^&* UP!
Look at everything they have done and ask yourself the question, “How does this help small business?”
None of it does…nuff said!
If you want to be owned by the government with no ability to write your own story (because all the money, i.e. loans, will be locked up) – then stay on your couch, watching your flat screen, eating the government cheetos, and drinking the government’s choice of beverage.
P.S. BTFrakkin’Way – just say NO to all of these bills. We do not need healthcare reform RIGHT NOW. We need to support and grow small business and homeowners. Stop talking about whether there is a public option, co-op, or not – JUST SAY NO!
