    Since 2010, I have not received a salary from the company where I’m the president and have worked for 31 years. My business partner, who is vice-president, also does not receive a salary. In addition, we’ve had to lay off a few people. My wife was the first to be let go. Thankfully, we have other jobs. We’ve used some of the profits from our successful businesses to help with the financial shortfall of our struggling company. Here’s what a report by Citibank found

    Unfortunate, but not that unusual.
    Good luck.

    So the article is not from citibank at all. In fact is an opinion page from some no more viable than Huffpo is to a repub.

    Small business owners and entrepreneurs are at the bottom of the list when it comes to Obama and liberals. You should not be trying to be independently successful. Oh, you created jobs? Time for more regulations and increased liability and costs. As for the layoffs, you are just like evil corporations.

    Main street and small business are the ultimate symbol for American Capitalism. Obama and his administration have been anything but pro capitalism.

    You mean like when a state or local agency, city council or school fails, their poor business plans are rewarded with infusions of more taxpayer funds.
