    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, June’s Index of Small Business Optimism dove three points,
    falling to 91.4. The decline is significant, and relinquished the gains
    achieved earlier this year. Only one of the ten Index components
    improved

    “All in all, this month’s survey was a real economic downer,” said
    NFIB Chief Economist William Dunkelberg. “The economy has definitely
    slowed; job growth will be far short of that needed to reduce the
    unemployment rate unless lots of unemployed leave the labor force-no
    consolation. Taxes remain a top concern for the small-business
    community. With the Supreme Court’s endorsement of the individual
    mandate as a tax in its health care decision, we will have to wait for
    July’s 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.”

    ObamaCare, the legislation that replaced the "We the People" of the Constitution with the insidious phrase,

    "the Secretary shall determine," which appears in the bill a mind-boggling 1,563 times, is still being written.

    "There's already 13,000 pages of regulations, and they're not even done yet," says Rehberg.

    The Orwellian-named Affordable Health Care Act is a "delegation of extensive authority from Congress to the Department of Health and Human Services and a lot of boards and commissions and bureaus throughout the bureaucracy," adds Matt Spalding of the Heritage Foundation. "We counted about 180 or so."

    Conservatives should be talking about little else this election cycle other than the fact that our job creators hate Obama and the hard left, and that the feeling is quite mutual.
