Obama-Barber Economy ‘Worked’ for Big Government But Left Small Businesses to Carry the Load in AZ02

Barber Expects Small Businesses to Finance His Limitless Spending Addiction

WASHINGTON --- At a campaign event this week, President Obama claimed his party’s big-government ‘plan’ has ‘worked.’ However, the only thing that the Obama-Barber economic approach has succeeded in doing is straddling small businesses with regulations, crippling taxes and the threat of more.
"“It’s baffling that Obama is bragging about how his policies ‘worked’ when so many families and small businesses continue to struggle,” said NRCC Communications Director Paul Lindsay."At the end of the day, the tax hikes and burdensome regulations that President Obama and Ron Barber champion are rippling through Arizona, leaving small business owners with little opportunity to get the economy back on track.”

Earlier this week, President Obama said at a campaign function that his big-government, job-crushing policies have worked:
"Just like we’ve tried their plan, we tried our plan -- and it worked. That’s the difference.” (“Remarks by the President at a Campaign Event,” The White House, 7/24/2012)

Coming from someone who thinks small businesses are ‘doing fine,’ it’s not so hard to believe Obama said that:
"President Barack Obama offered up a gift to Republicans Friday morning, declaring ‘the private sector is doing fine,’ at a White House press conference.” (Zeke Miller,"Obama: ‘The Private Sector is Doing Fine,” BuzzFeed, 6/8/2012)

But according to a new Gallup poll, a majority of small business owners disagree and do not approve of President Obama’s handling of the economy:
"U.S. business owners' approval of President Barack Obama fell in the second quarter of 2012 to 35%, essentially tying farmers and fishers for the lowest approval among major occupational groups.” (Lymari Morales,"U.S. Business Owners Now Among Least Approving of Obama,” Gallup, 7/26/2012)
