Friends of Ralph

Could Ralph Nader, one of the architects of the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, be the Presidential candidate that small business has been waiting for? Precisely, says the Association of State Green Parties, which is running Nader for President. The Greens are wooing small business with a single-payer health-care plan--financed partly by a 3.3% payroll tax. "Health care is the issue small business has said over and over is most important," says Greens spokeswoman Nancy Allen.

The Green platform decries "destructive corporate welfare," but the Greens insist they're pro-small business. "Small businesses are competing against big businesses on an unfair playing field," says Allen. "We need to support them." Sounds great--as long as your small business doesn't get too big.Edited by Kimberly Weisul
