Why no help for the true job creators?

I am a small business owner. I employ 18 people, all of whom live in and support our local communities. I have always paid their health insurance, which was up 14 percent in 2010 and 22 percent in 2011, but I cannot continue this for much longer.

I create jobs. I do not have tax loopholes provided by our representatives, and I certainly don't take jobs out of the country. If I fail, after 60 years, nobody will bail me out with your tax dollars. I have no funds for lobbyists to pressure representatives into special advantages for my business.

Will American citizens awaken and recognize that corporate America has snowballed our very democracy into a profitable package for Wall Street and not for Main Street?

We are the new "Silent Majority." Why are we not speaking out?
