U.S. Small-Business Owners Most Optimistic Since 2008

What gives? I thought Obama was the Job Destroyer and that Obamacare was going to be the final nail in the coffin for small businesses?

Why do right-wingers hate America so much and only celebrate bad economic news?

Obamacare isn't helping small business owners. Some are excited things didn't crash. I wouldn't praise nor blame Obama for the situation we're in.

was this supposed to be a positive post about obama? if so, you failed on several levels. you see that after bush left office, their optimism plummeted. it's nowhere near where it was when bush was in office.

Bush definitely wasn't good for small business.


Neither has been "good" for small business.

never said he was "good" for small business. I said that there was more optimism when he was in office according to the chart.

How about the Economic factors that would encourage small business owners.


Increased consumer spending power. Repeal of costly requirements and taxes. Low interest business loans designed specifically for business.


There's lots that can be done for small business owners. But then that would go against the interest of big business. And you know who our government sides with.

It increased 9 points to 25. That's still a far cry from 100 back in 2008.
And that's looking at their chart.

Obamacare only regulats 50+ employee businesses.. Which may or may not be considered small business..

on other news, of course they are more optimistic, economies go in cycles, 2008 it crashed, leaving an upward cycle to follow. Any fool should know this, which has me wondering why you dont know basic economic facts that have been going on for thousands of years.
