Small Business Lending Bill

According to the AP, President Barack Obama is going after Senate Republicans who have stymied his proposal to create a $30 billion fund to help unfreeze lending for credit-starved small businesses.

Obama made clear that it’s not only a policy disagreement, but a reason for voters to steer away from Republicans in November’s pivotal Congressional elections, which will determine whether Democrats keep their majorities in the House and Senate.

“When America is just starting to move forward again, we can’t afford the do-nothing policies and partisan maneuvering that will only take us backward,” he said.

The Republicans naturally seen it differently.
