Correcting my previous comment, actually most small business would be effected by not keeping the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, in that most small businesses would would receive a better deal tax-wise than they presently do.
markbnj -- if you're going to spam, at least post the correct url. And four years ago I predicted that culottes would eventually make a fashion comeback and for a few hours last summer I was right, so call me Nostradamus. Thank you.
Geez. Sitting here working for the first time in ages, and listening where I can comment
EVERYTHING so far has been touhed on by my blog over 4 years ago
TOP TEN list includes:
A new "LIVING WAGE", where it would allow a family to live on a 40 hour workweek
The 'minimum wage' would be renamed a training wage, and could not be given after three years of being in job.

The problem is the Republican/Tea Party candidates are pretty saying the same thing in the same way -- short pithy sound bites about taxes, big government, healthcare, obama, etc. But the Democrats each respond differently and mostly at length (as the issues deserve). So the Dem's message is diluted leaving people confused and more likely to go with the shorter, more memorable talking point. Democrats need brief, pithy, slogan-like responses to grab the short attention spans of most voters.
My eyes glazed over because actually very few small businesses would be effected by dumping the Bush tax cuts.
Also, your guest implied the Democratic candidate was closer to the Teabaggers because of a single issue. I found that a bit broad.
