You Decide: Which Candidate Will Help Your Business?

Posted by Mark Vega on 11/2/16 1:26 PM

No matter which candidate you support for President of the United States it’s important to plan ahead, especially if you own a business--or are thinking of starting a business. It hasn’t been easy to plan ahead. You probably still have questions for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump and how they stand on issues affecting small businesses and entrepreneurship. It isn't easy to find answers to those questions. Coverage of each candidate has focused more on scandal and personality than on issues of substance impacting small business.

At BusinessBlocks, we hope to reverse that trend by highlighting each candidate’s position on issues important to you. We use the candidates’ campaign websites (Clinton, Trump) to look at where each candidate stands on tax relief for small business, healthcare, and creating a favorable economic climate for entrepreneurship.
