It looks like everybody loves the Small Business Administration. At least Republican members of the House of Representatives do. House GOP members today released their plan to cut $2 1/2 trillion in spending over the next ten years.
Noticeably absent from their chopping block was the SBA, and rightly so. This is one of the only government programs that actually pays for itself. If you calculate the cost of the program and then consider the increased tax revenues generated by SBA borrowers, it generates net revenue back to the goverment.
Call it supply side spending.
