Democrats Stifle Small Business Dissent
 
Statement from Andrew Langer on Senate Democrats Attempts to Quiet the Opposition to Health Care Reform
 
Keeping Small Business Healthy President Andrew Langer on being asked to leave the Democrats press conference today:
 
“Democrats clearly want to silence small business owners critical of the health care reform legislation.  I attended the press conference held today by Senators Landrieu, Lincoln and Stabenow, and was asked to leave by Dan, with the Senate Democrat Communications Center.  An advisory was sent out for this event and nowhere does it state that only credentialed members of the media were invited. 
               
This is an outrageous attempt by the Democrats to silence the small business owners, who are the backbone of our economy, and who would be unduly hurt by this legislation.”
