The Real Enemies of American Business

Ask a lot of American politicians why many US businesses are suffering, and they'll give you some recycled garbage about dirty rotten foreign cheaters and greedy US businessmen who happily outsource American jobs in order to buy a new golden jet.  Ask any (legitimate) small businessman the same question, and you get this:

As I've said a million times on this blog and elsewhere, protectionism sucks not only because it restricts individual liberty, promotes cronyism and harms the US (and global) economy, but also because it retards real policy reforms by allowing smarmy politicians to blame voiceless foreigners for economic problems actually caused by their awful tax and regulatory policies.

Videos like this help shine much-needed light on the fact that America's economic problems lie not in China or India or Mexico, but in Washington, DC and statehouses across the country.  Please share it with everyone you know, because the more attention that it gets, the quicker it'll be the political scapegoaters, not American workers, out of a job.
