FORT MYERS, Fla. - Congressman Connie Mack is blaming the White House for slowing down the economic recovery.

Republican Connie Mack toured the Southwest Florida Enterprise Center in Fort Myers. It offers space and help to small business entrepreneurs.

Many small business owners told him banks aren't lending, because they are parilyzed because of government over regulation.

Mack also said taxes are strangling small businesses and he said he hopes the voters will change leadership in congress in November.
