Very interesting debate in the Senate today on the JOBS Act. It is interesting to watch Senators opposed to the capital formation and crowdfunding provisions of the JOBS Act decry a subject they know absolutely nothing about.
These members have a stone-age view of public policy and how the economy works. In addition, they feign "shock" at the speed the bill passed the House (it was about 11 months) claiming "special interests" had something to do with it. Well, it is small business owners and entrepreneurs behind the movement to make these common sense changes.
Please contact your Senators on Friday and early next week and demand that they pass the JOBS Act! Let them know regulations need to be modernized to allow small businesses to raise capital, grow their businesses and create jobs! You can call the Capitol Hill switchboard at 202-224-3121 -- ask to be connected to your U.S. Senators -- tell them small businesses (and President Obama) support the House passed JOBS Act!
