Memo to the President: In case just for a moment you really do wonder why businesses are not expanding, why their anxiety level is high, why the sense of uncertainty continues 43 months after the economic recovery supposedly began…just look in the mirror. Not just for another opportunity for self-adoration, but for the root cause of our economic stagnation.
According to results of a newly released Gallup poll, the top five concerns of small business owners are healthcare costs, taxes, energy prices, regulation, and the debt ceiling – all that have increased significantly under the Obama administration. Worse, if the President gets his way, all five of these business anxiety concerns are likely to go up even more during the second term.
Here’s what Gallup found:…..

Thanks to Obama’s economic policies, a west Georgia business owner says he isn’t hiring until the current President is gone.
Jon Shirek of News Channel 11 writes that Bill Looman of U.S. Cranes, LLC, is causing controversy over signs he posted on his company’s trucks.
“New Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone,” the signs read.
“Can’t afford it,” Looman said Tuesday.
“I’ve got people that I want to hire now, but I just can’t afford it. And I don’t foresee that I’ll be able to afford it unless some things change in D.C.,” he added.

The found of Bank Transfer day has claimed has claimed that the whole “day” was misunderstood.
The idea was never to have a massive one day move from big banks to credit unions, but rather for the day, November 5, to be the deadline of a broader movement.
It turns out that the movement actually had some heft behind it…
That is obviously a sliver of total bank deposits, but banks have been sent a clear measure.
You can check out the report here, and you’ll see what is the most important point…. The report briefly profiles David Meinert, a Seattle small business owner who, after being denied another line of credit, moved $3 million out of Chase and Bank of America and into a local credit union.

Two billionaire magnates, the founds of huge successful enterprises, have dramatically spoken out against President Obama’s management of the economy. They have been joined in criticizing the president by several CEOs of big companies. Normally, the heads of huge enterprises are cautious about offending presidents, but the magnitude of the disaster apparently has caused these men to speak truth to power.
Having built a small business into a big one, I can tell you that today the impediments that the government imposes are impossible to deal with. Home Depot would never have succeeded if we’d tried to start it today. Every day you see rules and regulations from a group of Washington bureaucrats who know nothing about running a business. And I mean every day. It’s become stifling.
If you’re a small businessman, the only way to deal with it is to work harder, put in more hours, and let people go. When you consider that something like 70% of the American people work for small businesses, you are talking about a big economic impact.
[Obama has] never really worked a day outside the political or legal area. He doesn’t know how to make a payroll, he doesn’t understand the problems businesses face. I would try to explain that the plight of the busi nessman is very reactive to Washington. As Washington piles on regulations and mandates, the impact is tremendous. I don’t think he’s a bad guy. I just think he has no knowledge of this.
