OpEd: Sounded alarm in 2010 on international competitiveness

Raese noted the effects of higher taxes and higher regulations on private sector job growth. As a businessman who keeps close tabs on foreign competitors, he frequently asserted that such hindrances to business here in the U.S. made it nearly impossible to compete against foreign countries.

So it is that the United States, who a generation ago was the economic master of all it surveyed following World War II, now finds itself struggling to compete against a rising cadre of new economic powers. John Raese, businessman, sounded that alarm, too, in 2010 and 2012. Clearly, he wants us to be able to compete effectively on all fronts again.

That's tough to do when our government has to pay so much of our budget just to pay the interest on a $16 trillion national debt--another Raese deeply-felt concern. Raese's perspective is as valid today as it was then. Given our ongoing economic problems today, his words ring true even more.

Roll back regulations to spur business and job growth

The best way to stimulate and perpetuate job growth and economic opportunity, both in West Virginia and around the country, is to roll back the excessive regulations that have much of American business in a strangle-hold. Most of West Virginia’s jobs today are being created by small businesses and people who are self-employed. The massive regulations they have to deal with, just to get their businesses off the ground, already put them at a disadvantage & make it difficult to grow & hire more people.
