“I live in Alabama and own a small business. We were recently levied an "assessment" because the interest on the money the state borrowed for unemployment benefits came due and the state didn't have the money to pay it, so they passed the cost on to the employers of the state. I'm sure this will be the first of many "assessments" to come.”

“I live in Colorado and own a small business, I too received my assessment.”

“Actually....the politicians are moving money around.........from the ordinary workers and small (SMALL) business owners...............to give to the rich, Wall Street, banks, and big corporations.
GE is reported to not pay taxes AND even get a subsidy.
I bet small business owners aren't so lucky.
We the American people AND SMALL business owners are being suckered.
The BIG BOYS are eating our (financial) lunch.
All we can do is fight among ourselves, point fingers, and blame each other while those GETTING the money are laughing at us.
At least until we start seeing real social and political unrest.”
