As it gets more and more expensive, expect to see even more jobs leave the country.

This popped up in the related links at the bottom of a page in the forums, so I thought I would resurrect it, to see how things are going and if peoples predictions have come to light.


Seems some were dead on the money. Others had no clue.

Which is passed on to the consumer, which makes cost rise.

A perpetual machine, we have created.

So, the question becomes if he would be bad or good for medium businesses. Answer- don't know. He's a relative newcomer and as such I suppose he'd pretty much take marching orders during a first term from the senate dems. That's neither good or bad, so the best answer may be he's have a nuetral influence.

Today it seem like a rhetorical question.

Of course Obama has been bad for buisness. When has a socialist ever been good for buisness?

Thank you. The only question now is...'Will there be any business left in the wake of Obama?'

Of course, he is bad for business. What do you think the effect of higher taxes, more regulations, amnesty, more unions and higher energy prices would be on business? If you think these measures are pro-business, I'd LOVE to hear you make the case. I'll try not to laugh.

It is pretty safe to say, Obama has failed the business plan of the USA.
You have to payoff the man, to stay in business.
Sounds like a criminal racket to me. Mafia style.
