Small Business Rebuttal on Debate
The debate still has a lot of people talking all across the United States, including here in the metro.
At the Buy the Big O Show downtown, small business owners couldn't help but take one topic of the presidential debate to heart, Small Business.
Some business owners rely on government cooperation and sometimes...help, for their shops to run successfully.
Amid the back and forth banter between both candidates on the October 17th debate, folks at the Buy the Big O Show want to know what both sides will do for small businesses like theirs.
In Obama's plan, the Bush-Era tax cuts for families will expire and Mitt Romney argued that would punish business owners.
In short, both Candidates argue their plan is better for a small business.
Attendees at the Buy the Big O show don't necessarily agree.
When all they have is a pre-presidential promise they speculate the next four years could be rough.
An Omaha business owner, Boyd Dingman owns Dingmans Collision Center.
He has three locations in Omaha and although his business is doing well, he worries for other shop owners who are not.
Dingman says he is looking for change and the change President Obama not only promised but delivered has been scary.
"We have got to look to the future, and if some of the same things happen I think there's going to be a lot of business that downsize ."
Dingman also says the White House needs to focus on creating full time careers instead of many part time jobs.
