Small business is the "Mom & Pops" jobs machine which provides half of the jobs in the US, but gets no sweetheart deals from government because they don't hire lobbyists. They don't have time to buy a politician a steak dinner. Most politicians don't even know these people because they believe that it's the govt. who actually makes the economy run by "priming the pump"
When Obama tells the small businessman; "you didn't build that", he actually means that somehow his administration gets more credit than the industriousness, ambition, and insights of the little guy's start up.
But Crony capitalism isn't just picking the winning corporations. Sometimes it's picking winning counties and treating foreigners better than your own life-long neighbors.
A Tea Party mandate gets corrupted when lobbyists dump the kind of campaign contributions into politician's laps. Just look at the campaign reports of these politicians and you will see what is really happening.
