There has been a lot said about the impact of Sequestration on not only the government departments but also on Small Business. I have seen a lot of indications that small business may be disproportionately affected by the cuts. The rationale is not only a cut in Federal Programs that some small businesses were bidding on but a cut in funds for the Small Business Administration will mean less money available for Small Business loans. Also, Federal Government departments that traditionally provided assistance for Small Business may lose staff and thus the Small Business will lose some of their "free" support that was afforded them in the past (navigating export regulations is only one example). When you combine this with the apparent delay in funding from many agencies (their way of mitigating risk of not knowing the full effects of sequester) or the reduced level of funding available on smaller contract releases the situation has made Small Businesses very nervous. When we depend so heavily on job growth from Small Business, this almost seems counter-productive to the President's mission.
