Virginia Fifth District Race - #2161 - National Federation of Independent Business Endorses Hurt, Perriello Scoffs - Bearing Drift

On Tuesday, the National Federation of Independent Business, “America’s leading small business association,” announced its endorsement of state Sen. Robert Hurt in the 5th Congressional District race. “Robert Hurt is a small business owner and NFIB member, which makes this endorsement especially meaningful,” said Lisa Goeas, NFIB’s vice president for political operations. “Our small business membership knows that Robert is one of their own, which means they are even more likely to actively support his candidacy by encouraging their employees, friends and family members to turn out and vote for him on election day.”....... “In explaining why its “Save America’s Free Enterprise Trust” chose to endorse Sen. Hurt, the NFIB listed multiple issues that factored into its decision, among those: healthcare, taxes, labor issues and and regulations. This explanation, however, did not deter Rep. Tom Perriello from criticizing the endorsement, implying that he is actually the better choice for small business owners:  Read more........Tom says he is for small business....NFIB does not think this is true and they say so in their endorsement for Robert. Tom counters this NFIB endorsement with a Lie. The lie is based on Robert's desire along with 61% of the rest of the country wanting to repeal ObamaCARE. If they do repeal it, there are some supposed tax relief items in the bill that would go away...maybe or maybe not, but it is worth every penny to get rid of ObamaCare. Because they make the rules/laws, a politician like Tom can lie in an ad without any risk of being sued or thrown in jail.  Article and commentary contributed by Steve Peters.

Tom Perriello, D-Albemarle County, as an ally of President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  Read more.....
