WASHINGTON, DC. (KMOV.com) --Vintage Vinyl owner Lew Prince participated in a small business owner’s meeting with President Obama at the White House Tuesday.
Lew Prince, along with 14 other small business owners, met with Obama for about 90 minutes to discuss the impact of tax policies Tuesday afternoon. Prince is the Managing Partner of Vintage Vinyl in the Delmar Loop and a leading member of Business for Shared Prosperity.
Prince is among more than 600 business owners and executives who signed a letter sent by the BSP and American Sustainable Business Council calling on Congress to end costly Bush tax cuts to the top 2 percent and reinvest in the country.
“We’re not here asking for anything for ourselves. We’re here because we want the best for our country. I’ve run a small business for more than 30 years. Expecting high-income tax cuts to trickle down as job creation is like pouring gas on your hood and expecting it to fuel your engine. It’s time to stop giving tax breaks to wealthy households and big corporations, and reinvest in America,” Prince explained.
Vintage Vinyl is the largest independent music store in the Midwest and one of the largest in the country.
