It appears the Obama administration has no idea of what businesses do or why they hire or discharge people. This guy and his pals live in some sort of fantasy land where talking is the equivalent of producing something of value.
Case in point. I live in an old (124 yo) house. I have, in the past 18 years, brought it nearly into this century, while maintaining the basic character, integrity and footprint. I'm ready to do the last big phase of renovation, which brings it 12 inches past the limits of the existing porch, but not outside squaring up the basic structure.
I live in an OLD neighborhood. Most houses are about the same age as mine, give or take 30 years.
The town now requires a 30 foot frontage to approve any sort of permit. ^&*^%%$# My existing, leaking nasty ass mudroom is 30 feet from the front. My porch, is 15 feet closer.
What the hell do you care that instead of a porch, I'd have a mudroom. But wait, you could charge me more taxes on it... Senseless rules.
And I'd be putting a bunch of guys to work...
Oh, nevermind...you have all your regulations to deal with....
