Jack Markell: Start It Up Delaware: nurture employers

Creating a Nurturing Environment for Employers: Readying a workforce for the world we now live in is a key part of making Delaware an attractive place to do business. So is providing a nurturing environment for new entrepreneurs. Let's start at the beginning. Businesses that start here are more likely to stay here. The challenge is to get the people, the ideas, and the capital together as we build The Start-Up State.

Inspired by successful models across the country, local entrepreneurs have created Start It Up Delaware. This public-private partnership will serve as a hub for entrepreneurial activity with support from Delaware's financial, accounting, legal, and real estate communities. It will build relationships with the University of Delaware, Delaware State and Delaware Tech, among other institutions of higher education.

Kevin Wade: Remove deductions and loopholes so GE pays some tax

Wade said that Congress must act to remove deductions and loopholes to simplify the tax code. He said that General Electric was able to avoid paying any federal income taxes two years ago by deploying special interest tax loopholes.

"We have loopholes everywhere but not loopholes for 'We, the people,' " Wade said. "We need to overhaul the tax code, which is 60,000 pages of nonsense, and remove it as an obstacle." Wade said his experience as a business owner would be an asset in the Senate.
