Earlier this week, Obama announced a new Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. That’s great. Just what we need. Another council. So for all of his talk about small businesses being the engine of this economy and creating the jobs, you would think that Obama would put some small business owners on this new council, right?
Wrong. Out of the 22 members of this new council on jobs and competitiveness, only one of them represents small businesses or has had significant experience running one. Politico reports, “Darlene Miller, the owner and CEO of Permac Industries, a manufacturing firm, was named to the council. In 2008, her company was named the Chamber of Commerce’s small business of the year, the White House noted.”
Obama couldn’t run a small business selling lubricants in an all-male prison.
