Obama has blamed corporate America for health-care costs, tax-dodging, and the financial woes. His agenda is designed to allow Democrats to brag that they have rescued the country from evil private business. Class envy and populist wrath. Should work, right?
But it hasn’t. What went wrong? A Bloomberg poll this week finds that 77% of U.S. investors believe Obama is “anti-business”. Voters see an administration focused on growing government, not jobs, and taking from some to give to others, and killing private business and jobs in the process.
