What was on the Entrepreneur's Wish List this past Christmas?

If you are reading this blog post, based on the demographics it targets, it probably means that it's been a while since you wrote a letter to Santa.  But, Wall Street Journal's Sarah Needleman had an article titled "Entrepreneurs Ask Santa for Loans, Lower Taxes," which asked the question:
What do small-business owners want most for the holidays?
The newspaper did an online survey/poll based on the article. 

Choices were:
  • A bank loan or line of credit
  • An affordable health plan
  • New equipment
  • Lower Taxes
  • All of the above
33% wanted "All of the Above." 

29.6% chose "Lower Taxes." 

Because the poll only allows for one choice, that really means that 62.6 percent of the Small Business and the Entrepreneur community wants taxes lowered.  Because typically a company doesn't really pay taxes in the case it's losing money, I find the results most interesting based on the slowdown in the economy in the last two years. 

I'm still processing the results.  What are your thoughts?
