Defaulting On The National Debt Ceiling Would Be Catastrophic For Small Businesses

Quote from WIPP President & CEO, Candace Waterman in Forbes this week!

“We can’t emphasize enough how disastrous it would be for Congress to consider a government shutdown if consensus cannot be met in advance of the funding deadline. Small businesses are especially vulnerable and many would not survive a government shutdown at this time due to the pandemic, particularly with the rapid spread of the Delta variant, and trying to move from crisis to recovery,” wrote Candace Waterman, President & CEO of Women Impacting Public Policy in a letter to U.S. House and Senate leadership. https://www.forbes.com/sites/rhettbuttle/2021/10/04/defaulting-on-the-national-debt-ceiling-would-be-catastrophic-for-small-businesses/?sh=7b065e743bf2

If the debt ceiling is not raised in the coming weeks, the U.S. will default on its debt for the first time in its history and that will be catastrophic for small businesses.

Since when is good public policy to support small business owners linked with eliminating the Inheritance Tax?? Inherited wealth at the levels at which the tax applies should be taxed, for the benefit of all the small businesses and working people who make up the world in which that money is accumulated an inherited. Yes, support infrastructure, schools, our environment by paying YOUR share of taxes, those who inherit and don't have to work!!
So very sorry to hear of Barbara's passing. She helped forge many gains that women received through her passion, leadership and kindness. May she rest in peace.
Hard to believe that our Barbara Kasoff, our leader, visionary, role model, mentor and great friend and advocate for all women entrepreneurs she ever met, has passed away. I am so very sad to lose her. As a National Founding Member, Chair of the Procurement Committee and former member of the Board of Directors, I worked with Barbara for over 12 years and never was less than amazed at her tireless efforts, her constant vision and her warm concern for each of us. WIPP would not be the force for positive change that it now is without Barbara's contribution. We owe her so much. My thoughts and prayers go to her family now and to all of us who shared a love and appreciation for Barbara. Farewell, dear one.
