    The travel industry today became the latest to slam federal rules and bureaucracy, charging that tough visa rules for potential tourists have robbed the nation of $600 billion and hundreds of thousands of jobs.

    Two grim facts: More Chinese now visit France than the United States, in part because it's hard to get a U.S. visitors visa. And while the U.S. used to be the destination for 17 percent of the world's tourists in 2000, that's dropped to 12.4 percent and shows no sign of changing.

    When are you supporters of the U.S. economy killer going to wake up?

    And remember this is the same Obama that chastened businesses for
    "President Barack Obama's administration has an "anti-business" bias which manifests itself through intimidation, trade, taxes and regulation, Welch[former CEO of GE] also said.

    He's there a month and he vilifies Las Vegas… he kills the hotel business," Welch said.
    Soon after he came into office, Obama slammed companies that benefitted from taxpayer money for taking corporate trips to Las Vegas. Businesspeople said tourism in Nevada took a hit partly because companies decided to cancel trips to Las Vegas following his comment.

    Business killer, foot in the mouth...Obama..
    "You don't blow a bunch of cash on Vegas when you're trying to save for college.
    You can't get corporate jets, you can't go take a trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayer's dime,"

    How are visa rules implemented in the wake of 9/11 Obama's fault? What would your criticism be if if he loosened restrictions? Soft on terror?
