Last week, President Obama’s visit to Cleveland, Ohio included plenty of rhetoric but little else for those wondering what he stands for. A recent Third Base Politics’ post highlighted the negative impact of President Obama’s regulatory policies on Ohio’s small businesses.
The blog noted:
Ultimately, Ohio’s small business owners are left to deal with his unnecessary rules and regulations that do nothing but slow their growth. These are the same people that hire the workers Obama claims to support.
I think most people would agree that 4,200 incoming regulations upon small businesses makes it harder them to expand their business and hire new employees.
How about $515 billion; the estimated cost of these regulations? You can’t be pro worker by forcing small business owners to lay off employees so they can pay for duplicate and overbearing regulations.
