President Obama is not hurting business. He's not really helping the unemployed, but, aside from the unemployment rate, nearly every other economic measuring stick has seen tremendous progress since he took office. Exports and productivity are higher, record profits are being attained, and taxes are lower than they've been in fifty years. In addition, he's trying to give businesses cheap, clean energy and the infrastructure to foster better communication and travel. He saved the banking and auto sectors from collapse.
During his term in office, Barack Obama has shown himself to be a largely ineffectual and incompetent leader when it comes to solving the financial crisis which is gripping this nation. He may fancy himself as another Franklin Roosevelt, but he's more of a Herbert Hoover, whose policies did nothing to get us out of the Great Depression of the 1930's. One way Obama could do something would be to use tax incentives to encourage businesses to hire Americans, instead of outsourcing. That hasn't happened. Another thing he could do would be to offer tax breaks to both small and large businesses. That hasn't happened either. The only businesses which have been aided by Obama have been the insurance companies, which will surely profit from his unwanted health care legislation, forcing everyone to have insurance, whether they can afford it or not. He is no friend to the American business community, no matter what he may say or try to get people to believe. These policies have hurt, more than helped, the American business community.
Many people wrongly believe that government has the ability to spur business. One of the most recent failures by the government was the cash for clunkers program that went broke in just a few weeks, when most of the money was going to buy foreign cars. Whenever government intervenes with business, everyone loses, and Obama has yet to figure that out.
President Obama is all about the small businesses. These are the ones that are trying to make it in this struggling economy. He has recently visited many of these local shops to show support in what they do. "Business is booming!", said one local sub shop owner. This was after the President told others to stop by and buy a sandwich. He's starting small, and every business matters.
