His job killing policies are striking home at small businesses, which are usually the engine that drives job growth.
One small business has publicly stated it is in a hiring freeze until Obama is out of office. It’s not that they don’t want to hire, it is just that they can’t afford to between an economy where inflation is double the economic growth and oppressive government regulations drive the cost of doing business up.
