The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) President and CEO Donald Danner accused the government of making it more difficult to start a business. This came after President Obama made a controversial comment in a campaign speech over the weekend.
In a speech for small business owners, President Obama highlighted the power of hard workers and government initiatives. He pointed to roads and the internet as government-made resources used by people who have become successful.
But one phrase rubbed Danner the wrong way: “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that,” Obama said.
