Americans Believe Business, Not Washington, Is Improving the Economy

While most Americans believe that the economy is slowly getting better, they are hesitant to pay tribute to the government for the improvement. A recent Washington Examiner article comes to this conclusion based on poll results about American sentiments. The article states, “…while majorities believe that unemployment is improving and the economy getting better, they don’t credit Washington. Business first, and consumers second, get the credit. President Obama and Congress follow in the poll.”

As Congress begins another session, hopefully, Members will acknowledge and react to the sentiments of Americans by letting businesses grow and flourish rather than stifle them with excessive regulation. It is extremely important that Americans sense economic progress in their wallets and the wallets of their relatives, friends and neighbors. In the end, government will most likely receive credit when Americans experience a direct, personal economic gain precipitated by what government does or, as should occur in this case, does not do.
