    If a federal tax on cigarets deters smoking, does a federal tax on earning deter working or building businesses?

    I have talked to many business owners, and yes the tax is bad enough, but what really drags them down is the regulations and paperwork.

    I believe regulations more than wages is driving business overseas. I also predict that when Obamacare is repealed it will have a significant impact on hiring!
