There’s a need for “reasonable compromise” when it comes to the looming regulatory tidal wave facing small businesses owners. As Former Senator Blanche Lincoln notes, this isn’t “a partisan issue.” Our leaders in Washington, D.C. need to listen.

Business making an anti-regulation pitch to voters
Associated Press, Larry Margasak
The National Association of Manufacturers, U.S. Chamber of Commerce and National Federation of Independent Business are working to make the anti-regulatory fervor their members share an issue in the last weeks of the campaign.
The chamber and the manufacturers group have taken out issue ads saying the expense to business in complying with federal regulations is killing job creation. NFIB local affiliates are conducting tours and news conferences to let small business owners present their personal stories.
The NFIB hired former Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas to coordinate the anti-regulatory campaign. So far the federation has endorsed only two Democratic candidates for Congress compared with at least 30 in the GOP.
