    I don't think that is a giant hurdle and can see a need for that.
    There are more Federal taxes and regulations than that, talk about cherrypicking. I have a good idea for people like you, let's dissolve all the state goverments and let the Feds run it all? That seems to be what you and others want

    LOL!!!! Talk about painting with a broad brush!

    Here is another example where States regulate the hell out of something:
    Wesley Keegan
    Owner of TailGate Beer in San Diego

    I started brewing beer as a hobby, which turned into a business. I legally started TailGateBeer in 2007, and sold my first kegs in 2008.
    Craft beer is a billion-dollar industry and growing at 10% per year. It's even done well during the recession.
    I use a facility in the Midwest to brew my beer, 62,000 gallons at a time. Nine months ago, we were only in San Diego county. Now TailGateBeer is in six states. By the end of the year, it will be in at least eight.
    Despite the growth, the industry is highly regulated and makes running the business challenging.
    First of all, every state has different regulations. And we have to keep track of all of them. And that's not so easy, because everyday there are new changes and announcements.

    One regulation is that we can't advertise where we sell beer on Facebook and Twitter.
    Then there are the taxes. We are taxed when we brew, when we ship, when we import and when we export to different states. We are also taxed when we sell to distributors or retailers.
    And if we have a violation, we really pay for it. Some of the fines are up to six figures.
    The bottom line is that it is easier to sell pot in this country than beer. And that's the truth.

    You can move out of a state, hard to move out of a country. That is what is going to happen if Obama gets his tax increase on the rich. They are going to look to lower tax states and move there. More and more people are already leaving Illinois, California, and NY to move to TX and Florida, why? Guess they must love that TX humidity.

    Who said taxes don't matter? how do you explain the growth of Fortune 500 businesses in TX?

    Wow, so again you're supporting the EXACT SAME PLAN Reagan, Bush 1 and Bush 2 implement that increased the deficit each and every year of their time serving as president.

    You don't have the right to complain about the deficit ever again. At least not if you don't want to be considered a hypocrite.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    And this has what to do with your complaint about regulation?

    Tax cuts don't increase the deficit, spending does. As has been shown, tax revenue grew AFTER the Reagan and Bush tax rate cuts were fully implemented, explain why? Like all liberals you want badly to buy the Obama rhetoric but all Obama does is lie to you.

    Regulations cost business and are added to the taxes as a business expense. Businesses are always going to look for places that have lower tax burden

    Earlier in thread you said:

    So now you are switching gears to big business?
