Small Biz State Of The Union & Campaigns

Thursday, January 26, 2012
Posted by Kristin Oberlander -Politicians are running for office all over America, that much is certain. It's a somewhat quiet week for the Republican candidates for president, since the Flordia primary isn't until next Tuesday, January 31st. The talk this week has been surrounding President Obama's State of the Union address. The NASE weighed in the night of with a response from President and CEO Kristie L. Arlsan and also the next day in a statementby Katie Vlietstra, our Director of Government Affairs.

We also noticed one small-business owner that is pressing Republican candidates on their self-employed knowledge. He has several YouTube videos asking them what they will do in regards to the inequitable Self-Employment Tax, an issue near and dear to the folks here at the NASE.

Katie Vlietstra - As Vice President for Government Relations and Public Affairs, I work to explain how actions on Capitol Hill can impact the self-employed. I love D.C. and have made my home in Capitol Hill, where I live with my husband and black Labrador, Coltrane. We love playing volleyball and softball on the National Mall.
