Earlier this week President Obama discussed how his administration has helped give small businesses a boost during the most recent recession and the current unemployment crisis. The small business boost has included 16 different tax cuts for small businesses over the past few years, including tax cuts for new equipment investments, for hiring unemployed workers and a tax break on health care premiums.

Although President Obama has been accused of being anti-business, he continues to be vocal with his support for small business owners as the nation prepares to vote in the mid-term elections on Tuesday.
