Will the GOP help small business?

President Obama on Monday urged the Republicans to support passage of a small business aid package ASAP when they get back to Washington after Labor Day.

So far, Republicans have threatened a filibuster and otherwise kept the package of small biz tax cuts and financial aid from being considered. Kind of bizarre when you consider small business is generally considered a loyal supporter of the Republican Party.

Here’s hoping Tennessee Republicans Sens. Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander will break with the party and help small business.
