State Of The Union

Listen, when even Mitt Romney has to admit that the economy under Obama is improving, things are looking up!
Tonight's State Of The Union address will focus attention on American job creation. Specifically, it's manufacturing sector.
It's hard to believe that, in my lifetime, America was a blue-collar manufacturing nation. But it was. The rich paid taxes. The middle class worked at jobs those taxes helped create. It was really pretty simple.
Now, not so much. Look, the lion's share of jobs are created by small businesses, something like 95%.
And something like 95% of small businesses are owned by people who make less than $50,000 a year off those small businesses.
It doesn't take a Ph D in math to see that the lion's share of jobs are created in the middle class by the middle class for the middle class.
If Obama focuses on this, he will nearly deflate the current Republican sabre-rattling over moar tax cutz.
