Listen up Obama

Nobelist Gary Becker is right on point in this piece. The reasons for the slow economic recovery are right under Pres. Obama's nose, he just refuses to acknowledge them. Instead of freeing up the economy, Obama continues to micromanage it, granting tax breaks here, taxing other industries there, cutting deals for his union buddies over there, etc. As I have said before and will continue to say, put some simple, clear rules in place and get out of the way. That is the best thing that the gov't can do for the economy.
