No one in the P.O. administration knows anything about business. There are no businessmen in his cabinet or inner circle.
Business is in business to make money. P.O. believes that their purpose is to be taxed or to give jobs to workers. These are only byproducts of a successful business not their goals.
P.O. believes that by raising taxes on businesses he can close the trillions of dollar budget deficit. Businesses are not really taxed! Businesses raise their prices or cut jobs to maintain a profit.
P.O. believes that by making it easier for unions to organize that more jobs will be created. Higher wages and restrictive work rules do not make for more jobs, only a less profitable business which leads to organizations like the auto industries which can not compete with foreign companies which lead to bailouts and fewer jobs.
P.O. believes by taxing small businessmen that the deficit will decrease. People unlike P.O. are not stupid, they will not work of hard or expand if it costs them more than it is worth.
Profits are not evil as P.O. believes. Profits allow expansion and give stock holder money to spend.
