Bill Butcher, who founded the Port City Brewing Company in Alexandria, Va., credited President Obama and a Small Business Administration loan with helping him get his business off the ground during a speech before the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday.
"For these last four years, I've had a president who's on my side. He cut small-business taxes 18 times. He kept middle class taxes low, which meant more customers for my product. He knows that growing the middle class helps businesses create jobs," Butcher said. "And I know that if he gets a second term, entrepreneurs like me will have the best possible chance to succeed."
