President Mentions Entrepreneurs in Health Reform

Feb 25, 2009

Posted by Molly Nelson - In his address to Congress and the nation last night, President Obama mentioned entrepreneurs and small-business owners numerous times.  Although the speech did not include any specific plans for small-business owners, plans such as health care reform and raising taxes on households making more than $250,000 annually are sure to affect some, if not many small businesses. 

Rep. Sam Graves (R-Mo.), ranking member of the House Small Business Committee, expressed concern that raising taxes would hurt entrepreneurs and "take dollars out of the hands of the small-business owners who create jobs for Americans" in a statement responding to the President's speech. 

Do you think the President's plans will help or hurt your small business?  Leave us your thoughts in the comments.
