“The president doesn’t understand that the government doesn’t create jobs—individuals do,” Danner said adding that the people who struggle and take risks to build businesses are the ones who create jobs.
Danner said that Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney will make it easier for people to start businesses and get jobs.
“We fundamentally don’t believe raising the top rate on S-Corps and LLCs is going to help create jobs. It’s going to cause people in small businesses to not invest and lose jobs,” Danner said adding that President Obama supports raising the top rate while Romney does not.
However, Danner agreed that the president’s comment is legitimate when put in context. He acknowledged that it is, in fact, harder to start a business in a country without a government that has invested in infrastructure such as roads and education—the context behind Obama’s comment.
