In New Billboard, Romney Campaign Showcases Small Business That Directly Benefited From Obamacare


The Romney campaign is up with a new billboard touting another small business owner upset with President Obama’s out-of-context remark that businesses don’t succeed on their own but rather with help from federal government programs.

But like so many of the small businesses that the Romney campaign has trotted out in recent weeks, Tanya L. Burns & Associates, an insurance brokerage firm in Florida, is yet another beneficiary of federal spending. And not just any spending: Burns’ firm has helped clients reduce their health insurance premiums thanks to the Affordable Care Act, which Mitt Romney has pledged to repeal.


The law firm (Burns & Associates) that Romney sought to feature in their ad (using Obama's grossly out-of-context remark) turns out to have been yet another beneficiary of federal government programs - specifically, this firm is helping their clients get rebates on their insurance due to the lowering of premiums by Obama's Affordable Care Act. Yet, here they are, hypocritically being touted by the Romney campaign against the very thing they are "pleasantly surprised" by.


During the Romney campaign’s recent “Built By Us” initiative, more than a dozen of the small businesses that the campaign sought to highlight have been found to contract with government agencies or receive taxpayer-funded small business grants and loans.

Everything's connected. All businesses share in the benefit of taxation. Reasonable taxation. If you don't like taxes, go live in Siberia. Romney & Obama are both fools. Romney for using trickery in his ads to make his argument and Obama for making a remark that looks pro-taxes.
