    Does this guy ever go away. Attack and spend, then lie. HE is hurting small businesses by killing our dollar, over regulating and killing the economy. Is it 2012 yet?

    OBOZO never ran even a small business, so what does he know?


    Yep, tele-prompter speeches don't work on the backbone of America.

    Obama is so full of it. Small buisness's around my area were making a killing when Bush was in office and now they are closing. So please here is a quarter take your orating skills to someone that gives a dam.

    What a sham. As a small business owner this health insurance bill is going to be very painful. I do not need loans but reduced payroll taxes and for the government to stay out the way. For 16 years we have made $$ and this year we are very close to not doing so and excluding all the Presidents flowery speech he is no help.

    Fact is that it is small businesses that are #1 in hiring in our Nation. We need to support them, in all ways possible. Beginning with Healthcare that is affordable and available for all.

    My brother-n-law owns a machine shop (welding) and he can not afford to offer Healthcare to his employees. In fact, my sister works to provide healthcare to her family!

    This is ridiculous, that our Nation does not have Healthcare for ALL who need it.

    (excuse the yelling)

    This must have been another "photo op" by the President ,as seen by the Republicans, like Obama going to receive our falling military people.

    To President Obama and true Democrats: get health care done anyway you can because the Republicans will never assist you in this or any other issue. In fact go ahead and give us single payer non-profit universal health care now.

    Our health should not be for profit.

    Talk is cheap. As a small business owner why are you making policies that will only hurt us further? We don't need a loan........unless we don't have to pay it back.......we need business. Your policies will put more financial burden on us, extending unemployment benefits that WE will have to pay higher rates for, forcing us to provide health insurance. This will only delay the recession, we will NOT be hiring anytime soon. Obama has NO business experience and cannot possibly understand what we need. Tax us to death isn't going to grow our business.
