Suntan12-Well said. The problem with the Obama administration is that he has no experience of ever running a business, not even a lemonade stand.
As a matter of fact, no one in his cabinet has a business background which is unheard of.
The economic and general business environments are tied together. The only way to have economic prosperity is to provide tax breaks for all including the wealthy that are permanent.
This would take some uncertainty away from businesses, but the problem with Obama is that the minute businesses think that they dodged a bullet, they face yet another threat.
His social justice agenda is ruining corporate America and many economists say that the millions of jobs lost may never return because many companies have sought to hire employees in other countries.
When businesses are offered lower taxes they expand their business by hiring additional workers, this raises the standard of living for the hired employees who tend to spend more now that they have a job.
Businesses are the lifeblood of the American economy and when taxes and regulations go up so does unemployment.
