There's something wrong with big business don't -- -- other good things so followed politicians I mean we know this from the Bill Clinton years -- -- a lot of fetish is one of them of that as more you know they talk about more publicly than others as a small business fetish.
Another is you know the family farm you never hear about people -- -- multifamily on dry cleaner stores but your family -- small businesses.
You know it small businesses aren't the backbone of the economy most cut most big firms started at a small businesses the ideas that you -- small business that -- -- a big business.
All business should should be treated equally.
It's true ports authority and Staples they're paying their OK they're dead -- the -- -- I get -- better but again as long as they're giving customers something that one at a price.
That everybody's happy and if they don't think -- to go ahead -- our government there is a real problem in the American tax code in an all kinds of subsidy programs whether it's a Small Business Administration or whatnot where small businesses get certain subsidies because they can't compete with the big guys and in the big guys.
By other subsidies you know end and this is part of the problem if you're sorting thought about small business sources big business sure compounding the problem.
What we need is a government that is not playing favorites and it's not -- -- -- your small business so we're gonna give you an extra hug and -- really be more unconditional love.
From the government than a big business.
-- what's a line you wish you heard from Mitt Romney tonight.
A -- I wish I had heard I.
I think I have to come back to the fact that it is the American people who are drivers of the economy that it's not going to be.
You know he said several times that we are going to help you.
We are going to help you and I assume that he means he and Paul Ryan and that's fine again if he means help me by deregulating so that I can start my own business helped me.
By reducing my tax burden -- reforming the tax code so that I can -- more easily.
But don't help me with a handout that I don't think that we need to be talking -- government helping people anymore.
Do you want -- There are many audience members who liked the speech and were inspired.
By at and are less -- I guess and I am and most of the panelist mark what line which you have liked to have heard from the ground I wish you would have said that.
It's his intent to disperse.
Power away from Washington DC and back to the people.
He talked about having faith in the people but he talked about everything I heard was about centralizing decision making in Washington DC.
We already have that that's what both parties do and if we're gonna get a change is gonna come from the people at the local level in the states and in talking all about.
I really kind of believes that these are small government guys Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney but -- you'd barely hear it.
And without the specifics.
I wonder if I should believe that well you know I mean I think Paul -- speech last -- another great performance and united I do think it matters people respond to that and they practice these speeches for.
Reason -- had very good rhetoric about decentralize power about pushing things away.
But then when you look at the substance of his legislative record.
Or Mitt Romney -- it's not about cutting government it's not about cutting regulations it's actually about growing the size.
And scope of government of voting for things like the TARP bill.
Voting for me outlets left behind his specific about airport.
What he's changed he's grown yeah yeah he's in office this two and a half is -- -- -- I want -- -- vice -- I want -- believes that you know.
And in terms of the feeling of central.
Planning that I hear -- or nieces.
I have a plan to create twelve million jobs.
I mean why not eleven -- fifth to hydrazine.
Don't create jobs and I want government creating any more jobs I got a government create.
-- They've got it -- and I think there are a lot of people who do.
Good work -- -- government employees and they -- excellent at the jobs that they are assigned but at the end of the day you know every government job.
Takes about their for taxpayers to support so it's a situation where we wanna create jobs in the private sector but Matt -- is not -- elected gonna start a new company or something -- My wishful thinking -- says he means we're gonna deregulate -- that will create the jobs but will we will come back.
