With what looks like boxes of single-serving potato chips in the background, Barack Obama talked after a meeting with New Jersey small business folks at the Tastee Sub Shop in Edison (where POTUS ordered a half-sized Super Sub to go). C-SPAN ran the whole speech (here’s a link), but the video isn’t embeddable (what’s up with that, C-SPAN?)
Obama’s here in NJ to support HR 5297, the Small Business Jobs Act, a mixture of tax breaks, loan guarantees and a $30 billion dollar pool designed to help small businesses get loans via community banks. Edison’s Mayor Antonia Ricigliano was along for the ride (and presumably, sandwiches).
