Leaving aside the healthy dose of hyperbole -- and the fact that Michigan has lost roughly 860,000 jobs since Mr. Rogers first went to Washington in 2000 -- you'd think that he would be willing to support a bill that supports small business.
Well, you'd be wrong.
Mr. Rogers voted AGAINST the Small Business Lending Funding Act of 2010 (H.R. 539).
While it's a safe bet that Mr. Rogers will come up with some emotion-filled excuse for saying no, the fact is that America's small businesses in a tough situation.
When you see Mr. Rogers,* be sure to ask him why he voted against small business owners and private sector job creation.
*Just kidding! You won't be seeing Mr. Rogers in the district this fall unless you pay for the privilege. He's too busy to talk to actual voters... or his opponent, Lance Enderle.
