Catalyzing Economic Development was Top Priority for McMahon






(this website is not managed by Linda McMahon)


Linda McMahon rallied keenly for small businesses during her campaign in 2010. Citing basic truths and her own experience she maintained that only through a smaller government (and therefore smaller government spending), would there be a lighter load on small businesses, and greater job creation. This principle could not be more true.

Although Americans are actively aware of nationally powerful companies and assume they can handle higher taxes, it is unfortunately the small companies that must also deal with Democratic-initiated greed. Most Americans are likely unaware that job creation does not start from the government, nor from existing big businesses, but from the small scale upward. In fact, a full seventy percent of job creation in America comes directly through the doors of small, independently owned businesses.

When liberal legislation comes down the pipe citing that the spending bill of America needs to be footed by big businesses (also commonly associated with images if influence, privilege and Scrooge-esque indifference to the plights of the needy lower classes), voters become excited at the prospect of equalizing the system. Somehow this narrative of Robin Hood plays up feelings of entitlement, and no consideration is made for the consequences of such major mandates.

Unfortunately, reality sets in quickly for small business owners who previously aspired to become widely successful and open new opportunities for lots of eager job seekers. As they near the thresholds of bigger growth, they suddenly find themselves faced with dramatic requirements designed for the “big businesses”, but that prevent any others from breaking through. Employees have to be laid off or hours reduced to accommodate the lack of ability to afford rigid government healthcare plans, and skyrocketing tax brackets.

This is the scene currently in America. The land of dreams has become the land of lack-of-means. A smaller government would mean the difference between true job creation (not just government jobs that are far smaller in proportion than what could be generated in the private sector), and an ever increasing poverty collective. Less federal spending would burst the bands that constrict the economy ever tighter each year and give it the room it needs to finally take down the debt, and reverse the fortunes of not only this nation, but many others dependent on our economic health.

These ideals were the very motivators that drew Linda McMahon to the campaign trail in the first place. Her experiences in growing her small business into something much greater prior to hefty government-imposed costs drove her to fight for the rights of every small business owner in Connecticut as she met with officials and planned her route to Washington.
