Yep, it’s election season, and Sen. Barbara Boxer wants your vote. The San Francisco Democrat has been traversing the state, listening to voters.
The No. 1 complaint: Businesses are still struggling to access loans and hire new workers, and San Francisco has been no exception.
Businesses have been the victim of Washington politics, as many attempts to continue helping small business has been stalled in Congress. To show her business-friendly side, Boxer fired off an e-mail Monday night, urging the Senate to immediately pass the Small Business Jobs Bill, which will cut taxes and get credit flowing again.
The centerpiece of this legislation is a $30 billion lending fund to help local banks extend loans to businesses. The bill will be heard when Congress returns in September.
”This bill would create hundreds of thousands of jobs at a time they are desperately needed,” Boxer said.
