    Most recessions are over by now.

    What's holding back business is a regime that gets up every day and publicly trashes them and threatens more taxes and more regulation.

    There will be no hiring until Obamacare is repealed.

    2,000 pages regulations on Health care?

    Government Stress tests for banks?

    2,000 page FinReg regulation?

    A regime that hates business?

    Nah

    Yet "government regulation" and "taxes" are about average compared to the past 25 years.

    Assume we have a can opener.

    Sure they are, sure they are.

    No, they're not average. Employers are getting creamed with massive new health care mandates.

    I see no reason why it wouldn't be true. So why isn't it showing up in the data when surveyed?

    They are staring at massive new energy taxes, forced unionization if Obama gets his way, and the biggest tax increases in history on 1/1/2011.

    Why the hell should the expand against the backdrop of the most anti-growth regime ever?

    BTW, the survey is from the National Federation of Independent Business, the lobby group for small business. They've been doing this survey for decades.
