A group of over 30 business leaders, including Jack Welch, slammed President Barack Obama in a paid advertisement that appeared recently in USA Today.
"In a campaign season marked by new lows in polarizing rhetoric, some of the most divisive has originated from the President and his allies — and has been aimed at successful people in the business sector," the business leaders write. "These attacks are not getting us anywhere. They are really just political tricks to distract from the President’s own policy failures."
The successful business leaders then explain how, in their opinion, Obama has been anti-business:
And the business leaders ask the American people to consider Obama's anti-business record before voting: "Before you vote on Election Day, think carefully about what kind of country we are creating for ourselves and coming generations. Will it be a country that demeans job-creating business owners by saying, 'You didn’t build that?'
"Or will it be a country that protects free enterprise and allows everyone to pursue their highest aspirations?"
