Why Does The GOP Hate Small Business?

For all the bluster about protecting small business owners, you'd think that voting in favor a bill that would give them tax breaks and make available extended loan programs would be a no-brainer, right? You'd think...

Senate Republicans on Thursday rejected a bill to aid small businesses with expanded loan programs and tax breaks, in a procedural blockade that underscored how fiercely determined the party’s leaders are to deny Democrats any further legislative accomplishments ahead of November’s midterm elections.
Ah, yes. It's an election year.

The DNC should put ads in every state and show all the bills that Congress has tried to pass and show how the republicans voted against progress.We who are politically engaged get it but the majority of people unfortunately aren't.
What concerns me is that the Citizens united ruling has now allowed corporations to use unlimited funds to use phony campaign attack ads against Democrats.That group that Rove runs has $50million in the bank-thats more $ than the RNC has and is funded by four billionaires which means they will easily raise more money if they need to.They will be a swiftboating machine.
