WASHINGTON (MNI) The following is the text of the National Federation of Independent Business monthly Small Business Optimism index published Tuesday: In a disappointing reversal of several months of slow but positive growth, Junes Index of Small Business Optimism dove three points, falling to 91.4.

Taxes remain a top concern for the small-business community. With the Supreme Courts endorsement of the individual mandate as a tax in its health care decision, we will have to wait for Julys survey to realize the effect it will have on small-business confidence. With over 20 new taxes contained in the law-a price-tag of $800 billion-and most of the regulations yet to be written by HHS, the implications for employee costs remain unclear. Uncertainty reigns supreme for much of Main Street. US NFIB Survey: June Optimism Index -3.0 to 91.4 – Text | ForexLive No jobs until the asshole Leftists are removed from power in Washington, peeps.
