You're post is a manifesto that has nothing to do with reality. You can't borrow money without a personal guarantee or puting up hard cash assetts if you're a small business. The idea that money is easy for small businesses is simply BS as is the idea that taxes going up on individuals doesn't impact the cash flow of small business and force them to either contract slightly or reduce other expenditures.
I'm all for higher taxes there's no getting around it but you don't have to BS anyone that this doesn't have an impact in a realatively stagnant economy. If it did why are Democrats overwhelmingly willing to institutionalize the Bush tax rates?
Comrade small businesses always get the shaft because small businesses don't have friends in either party or in labor.
