REGULATIONS & SMALL BUSINESS - WAYNE CREWS

Red Tapeworm 2014: Small Businesses Beaten Down by Recordbreaking Federal Regulations


Upstarts and small firms take it on the chin when it comes to regulation. Neither can suck it up the way large companies do, especially when large companies seek out regulation, crony-style. Something called the Regulatory Flexibility Act directs federal agencies to assess their rules’ effects on small businesses.

REPUBLICANS AND UBER - MARC SCRIBNER


CEI.org: Uber and Regulation: Pro-Business Is Not Pro-Market

“Republicans love Uber. Young urban voters love Uber. And Republicans hope that means young voters can learn to love the GOP.”

That was the opening line of Byron Tau and Kevin Robillard’s piece for Politico after the Republican Party rolled out a pro-Uber petition/prospecting campaign. Notice I say “pro-Uber” rather than “pro-market” or “free market.” > Read more

Located in Salem, New Hampshire, next to Tuscan Kitchen restaurant, this enormous indoor marketplace is over 10,000 square feet will encompass the sights, sounds and tastes of Italy and will offer an array of artisanal products, cooking supplies, gourmet delicacies and much more!  With over 25 years of food experience, owner and chief food taster Joe Faro’s original vision to create a Tuscan villa in Southern New Hampshire has finally transformed into a reality.

Guinta For Congress - Small Business Community Support for Guinta Grows!

Team Guinta is proud to release its 17th consecutive list of weekly endorsements.  This week’s release highlights another round of supporters from New Hampshire’s small business community.

This brings the total number of small businesses that have endorsed Frank Guinta’s candidacy to 75.  The Small Business Administration notes that small businesses in New Hampshire represent 96% of all employers in the state

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy, their support, advice and confidence in our Team’s ability to work on their behalf is humbling.  Having started two companies myself, I can appreciate the difficulties they face. With the economy shrinking in the first quarter nationally, and NH slipping to 30th in the country with regard to doing business, now more than ever we need to focus on pro growth policies.  Jobs and the economy will continue to be one of my highest priorities.”
