Voter Unrest

Voter Unrest

Today’s primary elections in several states are said to be a test of voter unrest. A large source of that unrest I discuss in my opinion editorial that ran in The Hill’s on-line version today.

Contrary to what you have heard from the tea partiers this unrest has more to do with present day Main Street than what is in the future for our grandchildren. It isn’t about tomorrow’s federal deficits. Its about today’s local deficits for small businesses trying to keep their doors open or grow to meet some increased demand.

In my op.ed I give some solutions to today’s deficit in small business loans. Hopefully the message will resonate on the Hill.

The Hill is known among those who influence policy as a “must read” in print and online. It signals the important issues of the moment. In an environment filled with political agendas, The Hill stands alone in delivering solid, non-partisan and objective reporting on the business of Washington, covering the inner-workings of Congress, as well as the nexus between politics and business. The Hill serves to connect the players, define the issues and influence the way Washington’s decision makers view the debate.
