Zingerman's Paul Saginaw: Don't shift tax burden to middle class
Chosen as one of 25 small business owners from around the country, Paul Saginaw, the co-founder of Zingerman’s in Ann Arbor, appeared on MSNBC’s “Small Biz Sounds Off: Decision 2012” series on Sunday night.
The series interviews business owners to ask them about the upcoming election and critical issues for 2012.
Saginaw said he’s not just interested in a candidate who is small business-friendly, but one who looks out for the middle class because it’s the “entrepreneurial class.”
He added: “The candidate for me is the one who is going to least aggressively continue to shift the tax burden onto the middle class.”
Saginaw also praised the Entrepreneur Access to Capital Act, which makes it easier for businesses to raise capital through crowd funding, or websites that help entrepreneurs find a community of investors to fund a business.
“This is going to spur a lot of business and help drive the economy,” he said.
