Create jobs - Buy American

I suggest that The President and Congress start a Buy American campaign. It will create jobs and have a positive patriotic impact.

Whitehouse

Quit forcing us to do work without pay. SSI/SSDI is NOT for being used for starting a small business. It's emergency aid. You (The Whitehouse) ought to be ashamed of yourself.

In The Dust

stop forcing us to do business plans with no money. Give us our per capita so we can do business. Mobilization is part of the business strategy. The business does not get done on paper you have to buy things. We already know what to buy. Give us money and watch us leave these forums in the dust.

Reducing Barriers for Minorities

Create minority specific entrepreneurship financing, mentoring and FREE continuing education opportunities (via business and law schools around the country) especially since minority entrepreneurs are more likely to invest in lower income communities hard hit by the recession.

Small Business

The only reason I do not have a small business right now is because I pay a 50% income tax on my profits. If I work for someone else my tax is one third of my income. You need to change the tax portion for small business owners.

Pay it Foward!

I suggest you give corporations and companies for small businesses and enterpenaurs tax incentives to "pay it foward " by assisting average people to open a business and or encourage enterpenaur ventures. For example, wouldn't it be great if you could "rent to own" an apartment complex or refurbish property housing, using a portion of your rent towards owenrship and or a business as a property a manager?
