Did you hear the big news from the world of small business? Jewish delis are closing in both Los Angeles, and New York City.
That is not a typo.
It’s not just an out-of-control IRS or EPA. And it’s not merely the punitive demands and restraints of the new federal healthcare law.
For any number of reasons, not the least of which is the inability for news outlets to focus on more than one simultaneous crisis, as public attention turned to the Fiscal Cliff telenovela, many are missing another serious economic threat: the small business spending cliff.
Pavlich explains what new Obamacare taxes will mean for the economy on The Kudlow Report.
My wife and I recently started browsing through classic Twilight Zone episodes. Seems like a reasonable thing for religious conservatives to do in the Obama administration’s America. But I wasn’t prepared for just how relevant it would be.
Small business owner reveals how Obamacare will force major layoffs.
The Presidential debates were Exhibit A for Obama's habit of "misplacing the truth" (ie lying). Obama told lots of hard-to-believe whoppers about his support of guns; his love of the oil, gas and coal industries; his unshakeable loyalty to Israel; and of course his response to the Libya Embassy attack. Boy can this guy misplace facts.
In less than two weeks, Americans will either elect a new President, or give Barack Obama four more years to continue carrying out his "transformation" of America.
During Tuesday’s second presidential debate, we held a live focus group with the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) on my nationally-syndicated radio program. After the debate was over, the business owners expressed disappointment in both candidates’ performance.
Small businesses are the foundation of our nation's economy. They employ about half of all private-sector employees, and they create nearly two-thirds of all new jobs.
25) Debate preparation, obviously.
The political conventions have passed, the August jobs report is out, and many Americans are said to be “giving up hope.”
On Friday, the U.S. Department of Labor reported more disappointing news. The economy created only 96,000 jobs in August, the unemployment rate remains above 8 percent, and more than 350,000 Americans have dropped out of the work force. While some may focus on the jobs that were created last month, this jobs report is nothing but horrendous. I welcome any jobs, but American workers giving up on employment in the weakest recovery since the Great Depression is cause for alarm, not celebration.
It’s been a tough primary season. One to race to watch is the newly redrawn 6th congressional district in Arizona. The Independent Redistricting Commission carved up the map in favor of Democrats, forcing two incumbent congressmen to run against one another. The primary is August 28.
Shrewd move in choosing House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., as running mate for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Now here's the next play: Invite George McGovern, the 1972 Democratic presidential candidate, to speak this month in Tampa at the Republican National Convention.
WNC Charlotte discusses the impact that the Dem convention in Charlotte will have on local businesses.
One of the aspects of President Obama’s worldview that has drawn consistent fire is his evident hostility toward business. His comments in Roanoke, Virginia three weeks ago (“If you have a business, you didn’t build that”) are just the most recent in a long history of shameful displays of ignorance about the way a business is launched, how it is grown, and what makes it successful.
When President George H. W. Bush raised taxes in the 1990 budget deal, it not only meant breaking his “Read my lips” promise with the American people. It was also from that time forward that conservatives in Congress have opposed any and all tax increases.
Chicago passed an ordinance that allows food trucks to prepare meals inside the food truck-which means they can put mustard on a hot dog for you, but the trucks cannot park within 200 feet of a brick and mortar establishment. That includes places like Walgreens.
President Obama announced he supports tax increases on everyone who makes $250,000 and up. He advocates increasing taxes to the same levels they were under former President Clinton, a position even Clinton himself doesn’t support.
Obama's desperate protests that his anti-business rant was taken out of context are betrayed both by that very context and because they are a part of a piece -- just one more component of his war against the American entrepreneurial spirit.
Every single Democratic senator, excluding the retiring Lieberman, and Webb, voted to raise taxes on small businesses, all but guaranteeing to slow the economy further. It passed Harry Reid’s senate 51-48.
