Many NY congressional Democrats are running as pro-small business. As I pointed out, it could come back to haunt them. However, since Democrats are spending a lot of money to sound Pro-Main Street, the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council came out with a rating today in the NY Post to put the matter to bed. The ratings show that NY's congressional caucus is abysmal and all of Upstate's favorite "pro-small business" democrats made the list.
Here are the ratings from the races you are interested in-
Tim Bishop has a great big ZERO.
"Still the One" we need in Washington; John Hall? Small Businesses say ZERO!
The great businessman turned congressman in NY's 20th, Scott Murphy? He got a 7% rating.
Dan Maffei proved that yes, it is possible to score, but score lower than Scott Murphy. He put up a 5%.
Bill Owens topped out all of the congressional Democrats on the list at 23% and Michael Arcuri rated 18%. These guys are the big moderates by the way.
Their ads say that they are great for your businesses, but actual businesses say no way.
