Regulations, taxes aren't killing small business, owners say | McClatchy

WASHINGTON Politicians and business groups often blame excessive regulation and fear of higher taxes for tepid hiring in the economy. However, little evidence of that emerged when McClatchy canvassed a random sample of small business owners across the nation.

"Government regulations are not 'choking' our business, the hospitality business," Bernard Wolfson, the president of Hospitality Operations in Miami, told The Miami Herald. "In order to do business in today's environment, government regulations are necessary and we must deal with them. The health and safety of our guests depend on regulations. It is the government regulations that help keep things in order."

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is among the most vocal critics of the Obama administration, blaming excessive regulation and the administration's overhaul of health care laws for creating an environment of uncertainty that's hampering job creation.

There is hardly any demand out there, most of the jobs are now overseas and that's where the new jobs are. How can there be any job growth? China is the future, US is history.

This is a bit dishonest... what they SHOULD of said is mega-corporations hate the regulations and small businesses hate the taxes.... so yes, BOTH regulations and taxes are hurting businesses, depending on what YOUR agenda really is and who you work for... most small businesses aren't restricted very much in terms of regulations... large corporations are...

But it isn't about the realities, it is about elections. There cannot be any better election campaign than one run through horrible economy.

Agreed. Small business owners are regulated normally by states and local municipalities, while big ones are multi state and thus fall into federal regulations. Someone would be a fool to talk to small business owners about federal regulations and pretend to make a point.

Nope. It doesn't require any learning when you think about it. Common sense. Obama and the democrats couldn't, because the economy has been in shambles at least since 2001, obvious to anybody who didn't have his/her head stuck in the sand.
