Shapiro, on CNN.com, Bashes Politicians
Consumer Electronics Association President/CEO Gary Shapiro took to the pages of CNN.com this week to bash politicians in both the executive and legislative branches for spending, deficits, and the possibility of big tax increases. The piece was also published on CEA's Web site.
"Congress and our president have yet to make the hard choices, in fact, the only real choice they have made so far is to shift a tremendous financial burden to our children and grandchildren, mortgaging their futures and compromising their ability to attain the American dream," Shapiro wrote in the piece, headlined "Next generation Won't Have a Bill Gates."
The headline was a reference to entrepreneurial spirit being stifled by a lack of access to credit. Therefore, the future Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg would not be able to get a business loan to launch their new business.
