There's a quarter to what our -- -- small businesses as you sound.
-- our current -- responsible for about.
Half of -- economy -- -- economy -- Well it's growing at a very slow pace at this point in time I think the big issue that people concerned about particularly independent business owners as the size of the national debt.
To go down the block every US citizen knows 50000 dollars.
And I think business owners are deeply concerned that that is going to be their debt anybody today that has any form of wealth needs to be concerned that the government.
Ultimately is going to come after that wealth.
-- -- remain in the form of taxes or some form of other confiscation.
-- -- just -- Obama -- selected per second -- and -- just come glom on your money.

So what politicians do today is they key borrowing -- it's very easy to boost GDP if you can borrow at 01%.
And the reason why are able bar -- -- 1% is of all the economies were clearly messed up but everybody is so much worse off.
That all -- of dollars are running to the US government.
