The White House reaches out to the small business community on LinkedIn

July 25, 2009

As I’ve voiced before, small businesses are critical to our economy. On LinkedIn, over 12 million of you own or work at a small business. That’s why we’ve teamed up with the White House to make sure your voice is heard.

Today in his weekly address, President Barack Obama focused on health care for small businesses and announced that the Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) just released a report on The Economic Impact of Health Insurance on Small Businesses and their Employees. The report highlights the essential role of small businesses in our economy and calls for health care reform to reduce the burdens that the current system place on them.
