Len Britton on Corporations
But in the Great Recession, small businesses have had a cold shoulder from government and banks. The Obama stimulus wasn't designed for them. No bailout programs for your local coffee shop, garage or dry cleaner.
The US Treasury says the 22 largest banks to take federal handouts in 2008-09 have reduced small business lending by $12.5 billion since April 2009. That's not right--and the belated Democratic small business aid package mentioned by Pres. Obama in his State of the Union address is too little, too late.
As Senator, Len Britton will change priorities. Small business won't be an afterthought; it will come first. Gigantic corporations can take care of themselves for a change. Len Britton promises to take care of small business.
