Steve Wynn: Democrats Bankrupting the U.S.

Steve Wynn is rare for a CEO - he is willing to put himself in the crosshairs in a highly regulated environment, where government retribution could be very possible. Nevertheless, he is speaking plainly about the business environment in this country caused by Democrats:

I cannot predict what healthcare costs are going to be, what regulatory load they are going to heap on us, what new taxes or other burdens this insatiable governmental appetite for money from the citizens will take us to.

Now, that is simply a statement of fact. It isn't a partisan political pitch.

It's simply a statement of fact from a businessman who has supported probably more Democrats than Republicans. But I say right now that the Democratic agenda of spend and bribe the public has bankrupt this country, and until it stops, the citizens of this country are in for more hard times.

It's hard to argue with him.
