Small business confidence at a record high.

Small business is the engine that runs the US economy, so this is great news. Finally having someone who understands the economy in the White House is paying dividends.

Small-business confidence hit a record high in 2017, according to the National Federation of Independent Businesses.

The National Federation of Independent Businesses on Tuesday released its Small Business Optimism Index for, capping "an all-time record setter" of a year in 2017, according to the right-leaning lobbying group.

The optimism index came in at 104.9 in December. According to the NFIB, the index's average monthly level was 104.8 in 2017, the highest in the history of the the survey.

Juanita Duggan, the president and CEO of the NFIB, pinned the increase in optimism on policy changes from Washington under President Donald Trump.

"With a massive tax cut this year, accompanied by significant regulatory relief, we expect very strong growth, millions more jobs, and higher pay for Americans," Duggan said in the release.

Of course they don't....they want to focus on the top 1%.....When it is the small business' with 50 or less that are the backbone of employment, and these are the ones who benefit the most from getting rid of the rediculous regulations Obama put in place with his executive orders......Obama was a fuckin' disaster....
