President’s budget fails job creators
Hitting the hiring class only hurts workers
Recently, President Obama transmitted his budget proposal for fiscal 2013 to Congress. While political documents are to be expected in an election year, this budget was still widely panned from the left and the right as being devoid of any real solutions to our nation’s problems and simply a perpetuation of the status quo that has gotten us into quite a mess as a nation. Even worse, for a country that desperately needs job creation, it does nothing to empower entrepreneurs or encourage small-business owners, the real engine of a free-enterprise economy.
Businesses and working families also set budgets. Budgets should not only set priorities but reflect reality as well. Mr. Obama’s budget does neither.
