Obama put forth a huge tax cut for businesses this summer, why didnt the Republicans vote for it?
I think your struggle is what every american should support. A guy has an idea, puts his heart and soul into it, hires a few people etc. Thats exactly how we build the middle class and get out of this mess.
I'm also against stupid ass regulations. I have to deal with that stupidity daily. But, we almost had another depression because we allowed businesses to do whatever they wanted. Almost total deregulation caused so much harm to this country. Wheres that line when we have trip wires in place so that businesses dont cause us all to suffer a depression?
We haven't come close to "almost total deregulation" during your lifetime. What you're complaining about, even if you don't realize it, is the misregulation and unintended consequence of government action. This utopia that you envision where government keeps all the good regulations and discards the bad just doesn't exist.
Obamacare’s fix for an American health care system that the federal government long ago broke, is to give the federal government far more power over American health care; that its solution to escalating health costs is to mandate greater health benefits (and, hence, higher costs); and that its solution to the pricey overreliance on pre-paid health plans — offered by insurance companies in lieu of real insurance — is to have the government require Americans to buy those pre-paid health plans under penalty of law.
