Keep the Government Out of the Boardrooms and Businesses
I am someone who believes that the federal government should stay out of the corporate boardrooms of America. Simply put, Washington does not know how to run any business. It can barely run the business of the United States.
Time and time again we have seen the failure of government programs trying to manipulate a free market. And while I admit there are times when our interstate and international commerce may demand uniform federal oversight for such things as defense and the environment, the list of such areas is small – much smaller than the burdensome and ineffective intervention of seemingly countless federal bureaucracies business owners face today.
The states only make matters worse.
Today there is a hodgepodge of conflicting state regulations. They hamper the ability of small business to compete. They thwart innovation. Take for example New Jersey and New York, both of which are two of the least-friendly states for business due to their regulations and high state taxes. Both states are also in the top ten with residents leaving to move to other states—with so many state regulations, on top of federal laws, is it a surprise people are doing business elsewhere?
Let’s get government out of the boardrooms of America.
