During a year when economic policy took center stage in Washington, small businesses found themselves in the national spotlight for much of 2012.

Many of the most memorable moments took place during the race for the White House and the build up to the fiscal cliff, as political rivals engaged in relentless and often bitter disputes over the best policies for businesses on Main Street. Months earlier, the same two sides sparred over health care reform, turning the nation’s attention to the likely impact of an employer mandate and small business tax breaks.
