Should the Federal Gov’t Study Barriers to Veteran Business Ownership?

Argument in favor

Veterans face unique barriers to establishing and supporting small businesses. It’s important for the federal government to understand these challenges so it can address them properly. While there are numerous programs to support veterans looking to open, or who already own, small businesses, the reason(s) behind the recent decline in new veteran-owned small businesses and the role that access (or lack thereof) to credit plays in veterans’ small business ownership aren’t well understood.

I believe that young people, in particular, enlisting for military service and possibly re-upping do not have the opportunities to fully develop credit histories which effects their credit score and access to loans to support new business ventures. They are therefore disadvantaged by virtue of their service and should not be ‘penalized’ because they have served. I think this deserves study and actions taken to remove those disadvantages if they are as bad as I suspect they could be.

Anything that can be done to help vets should be done. We have many vets that have returned from Afghanistan and other wars with severe mental and physical issues. They should be assisted as much as possible.

Argument opposed

While the number of new veteran-owned small businesses is lower in the post-9/11 era than the post-World War II era, this is due to new veterans’ youth and excellent employment prospects for veterans, not necessarily to barriers to veterans’ entrepreneurship. With this in mind, it would be a waste of federal money and resources to study barriers to veterans’ small business ownership in the absence of strong evidence that veterans are actually facing increased barriers to entrepreneurship.

How about we stop overly glorifying veterans for their service to the oil empire and investigate barriers to starting a business that affects ANYBODY.

    Any assistance the veterans need, they should have access.

    It’s good that it passed. But I am not sure how much needs to be studied. Just enact a law that veterans can get small business loans without much red tape.

    The better Question is who are the 3 Treasonous Republicans Voting against giving better opportunities to our Patriotic American Heroes, Our Veterans. And Who are the Ignorant Morons that elected to office?

    The Federal Government is not objective enough to conduct a fair relevant study of any kind.

    The credit agencies and Federal Reserve were created by the banks. They were created to protect the profits of the banks. The only way you can get credit is having a history with the banks using one of their instruments like a loan, mortgage or credit card. Here the sick part of this. You could pay all your other bills like cell, electric, etc and have no credit cards and your credit score would still be bad because you have no credit cards or mortgage.

    We need to support our Vets. Without a study all we have is unsubstantiated opinions.

    If a person wants to work 18 hours a day instead of 8, they will do it. I am a veteran and I do not want my own business. I don’t see why you have to investigate something that doesn’t exit. There are many factors available for anyone not only veterans to start their own business. I don’t understand this Congress wanting to hold your hand the whole way. Allow folks to do it themselves. Just pass legislation to enable all to get a business loan in stead of studying it. It is up to the individual not you. I see who proposed this a Democrat who feels everyone needs help and can’t do it themselves.
