This president doesn't understand.
It's the sweat equity of hardworking.
Men and women -- And we also put in the letter to the president we don't agree with this tax policies.
And that it's just another sign.
Or or is definition of the wealthy for that matter as well as just another indication that.
His administration doesn't understand.
What it takes to create and sustain jobs in this country especially from the small business community's perspective.
You know we create 65% of all net new jobs in America according to the Department of Labor.
And you know we've been under assault for the last three and a half years in this administration.
And businesses that is trying to stay in business it's been difficult.
I already got the memo this -- Steve but I don't think he flips over you know.

Are those folks that have already been in business have a track record.
Access to credit has been very hard for the aspiring -- -- nor.

Too little too late it's about time what are you -- While it's great to see governor Romney showing more passion.
As we move towards the general election.
Clearly the policies of this administration have not worked.
And the governor has a proven track record of understanding the business world how it works on and so you know I hope that he continues.
This passionate every tort the president and his comments and quite frankly -- -- -- know -- you but if I was a small business owner.
And I heard these comments.
From the president.
-- after all the difficult times are going through I'd ask for an apology.
To the small business owners again they create 65% of the jobs in this country.
And the president says -- in build we built it and I think that's.
That's offensive and I think they're speaking to a lot of our members this past few days other very troubled by it.
Euro puts to thank you very much for.
