If they get money at 0%, why am I paying them 9.5% that is about 4% more than what it costs them to do business. If my financing overhead was cut in half, I could pay down my debt faster and be in a better position and have money avaliable to take advantage of more opertunities to invest in my company. I believ that as soon as this crisis started in November of 2008, the fed should have allowed businesses to keep 50% of our employee tax contribution and put that money to work. When the government takes in money and then redistributes it, they loose at least 30% to overhead.

It has won many local, national & international awards and has a projected 80 Billion dollar US market and already has had interest in 7 other Countries.
We have currently been in business for over 3 years. Along the way we won a Governors business conference and were promised some “Stimulus money” to expand to meet the demand. Of course we were not “too big to fail” so all we received were idle promises. Then we won an International award at INPEX®, Invention & New Product Expo and this added increased demands for our products. We were approved for a Small Business Administration (SBA) loan but of course, no banks were lending to businesses. We were forced to restructure the Corporation to allow for private investment and file the necessary paperwork with the Securities & Exchange Commission.
Now we have an extremely large marketing firm that is interested in our products to take it nationwide then internationally and still in the process to raise the needed capital. We are only seeking 10% of what the Company is valued at and will be creating 3-400 much needed jobs in the process. We are still seeking investors but will factor any necessary additional.
The US and many State Governments, although they talk job creation we have seen none. They also state they are helping business owner that want to expand….where we cannot even get a meeting with our elected officials. They set one up, but before it they cancel, due to some outrageous excuse.

We are not looking for handouts; we are looking for a fair chance.

I promise you the recover would be much, much faster and without all the expense. And Mr. President you could still take all the credit for the recovery.
Secondly, if you’d get out of the healthcare business prices for care would decrease significately. Why does goverment ALWAYS think they have ALL the answers?

LOL HAHAHA, it is laughable this SocialMarxist is now mentioning Small Business. Obama is nothing more than an empty suit. LIke Clinton words mean NOTHING! We get lip service from this moron and nothing else. Obama is anti-Capitalism and anti-Free Enterprise are we now to believe he’s changed? He does it so those left wing newswriters/readers on CNN and MSNBC can fall over themselves as they lap up the rhetoric that Obama spews. Hey it sounds good, the annointed one has spoken. This is the same guy who is now redefining what the word “Spending” means. It’s now Investment or Invest. What a joke. He’s going to continue to spend us out of this recession? Come on.. nothing about cutting spending, nothing about reducing gas and oil prices. Nothing but Government “Investing”! What a joke!
