No, Mr. President, That's Not Their Job.

That is what gets in the way of them effectively doing their job.  From an interview published in The Economist. 

The Economist: Yes, tell us about that. We see a lot of business people and they do complain about regulation.
Mr Obama: They always complain about regulation. That’s their job.
He may actually think that's their job - and that is sad.

  1. I don't think that's what he meant; I think he meant that there is naturally a dialog between business and government regulators. If business people never complained, would government be doing its job protecting the rights of workers and customers?
