A web video from the Romney campaign today highlights Dennis Sollmann of Sollmann Electric in Sidney, Ohio, who disagrees with President Obama's view that small businesses like his owe their success to the federal government.
“I mean, I’m thinking, you’ve gotta be kidding me. He was trying to say 'hey you didn't build that business on your own. The government helped you build it.' And that's what ticked me off more than anything. Mr. President, unfortunately you have no idea how we here in Midwestern Ohio try to run small business from the day light until night. Not only my business but other small businesses - they're all scared to death that the path that we're headed with the current administration is not the path for America.
“We need a new path so that my son and my grandson can prosper like I did. What we need is a leader who truly understands - truly understands - how business works. My name is Dennis Sollmann, president of Sollmann Electric, and I built this."
Since President Obama Took office, America has lost 473,000 jobs and the unemployment rate has remained above eight percent for 41 straight months. Yet the president is still insisting that Congress raise taxes on small businesses.
As a former small businessman, Congressman Boehner understands that President Obama’s small business tax hike is bad for jobs – which is why the House will vote this week to stop the looming tax hike. If you agree and want to get involved, sign Team Boehner’s “Stop the Tax Hike” petition today.
