Given that consumer spending is roughly 70% of our economy, the President also heard directly from these local business leaders on how they would be affected by a tax increase on middle class families. News of their visit and the important messages that these small business owners brought to the table on Tuesday was carried in their home towns from St. Louis to Jacksonville, across television, newspapers and radio.   Let’s take a look at some of the coverage of their meeting from local media outlets across the country: Detroit News: Wayne business owner: Extend some tax cuts Detroit News: Wayne County entrepreneur urges 'certainty' in business forum with Obama Detroit Free Press: Owner of Detroit-area trucking firm tells Obama she's OK with higher taxes Detroit – NBC (MI):  Andra Rush, Founder, Rush Trucking: “The president agrees with having tax cuts extended to 98% of the population and has already agreed to that, he’s cut $1.1 trillion in government spending already, and he's ready and willing to get the job done, as well as cut the red tape to help continue to create jobs and support small business. I think by having our economy sound and by having a budget that has been approved by all parties, bipartisan, what it does is it creates a certainty so consumers purchase. I'm in the auto industry, so people buying cars made in America is fantastic and that helps us create jobs right in the city of Detroit.” Read more here.  WisBusiness (WI): In meeting with Obama, New Glarus Brewing president praises his work on health care Green Bay – WBAY (WI): Wisconsin Beermaker to Join President Obama's Small-business Summit St. Louis Dispatch: Vintage Vinyl Owner Meets With The President St. Louis Public Radio: Vintage Vinyl Owner Among Small Business Leaders At White House Meeting St. Louis Biz Journal: Vintage Vinyl’s Lew Prince talks taxes with President Obama St. Louis – FOX 2 (MO): Co-Owner Of Vintage Vinyl Gives President Obama Economic Advice read more
