RESCHEDULED - The National Small Business Association (NSBA) is the grandaddy of Washington-based small business advocacy organizations. It was founded in 1937 and currently represents a membership of more than 150,000 small business owners.

What is particularly interesting about the NSBA is that, while it is not particularly microbusiness focused in the same way that the National Association for the Self-Employed is, the organization remains one of a very, very few focal supporters of microbusiness interests on Capital Hill.

All things considered, that makes this outfit special.

Todd McCracken, president of the NSBA, joins us for a frank conversation about microbusinesses, politics and public policy, about the difference between what lawmakers say about small businesses and what they actually do, and on how microbusiness owners can make a difference.
