What has the Obama administration done to encourage people to start or expand their business?
Businesses are the only ones who can create jobs, either directly by hiring people to create wealth, or indirectly, by paying taxes so the government can hire people who do not create wealth. Joe the Plumber is my kind of guy.

what do you mean "their" businesses??? They didn't build those, the businesses are just a product of what the government allowed them to create.
