A recent Gallup Poll conducted in June 2013 found that only 10% of Americans surveyed had either a “great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in Congress, the lowest confidence rating in history. More than half of those surveyed (52%) had little or no confidence in Congress. According to this poll, Congress has lost the trust and confidence of many Americans.
Perhaps one reason Americans trust small businesses more than Congress is that Americans have more power in their business dealings than with their elected leaders. If you do not like a local business, you can take your business elsewhere. Unlike voting for Congress, you can choose where to conduct your business on a daily basis. However, if you do not like your Congressional representation, you can only vote at election time.
As small business owners, the attorneys at Skeeters, Bennett, Wilson & Pike believe we are accountable to our clients, and we strive to provide high quality, competent professional legal services at fair and competitive prices. We understand that if our clients are happy, they will conduct their business with us, and if they are not happy, they will “elect” someone else.
