The survey was completed by actual small business owners so it is encouraging but hardly definitive. But we know we have a good thing going on. Highest average income, lowest poverty, best quality of life, safest, lowest overall tax burden, and –surprise!— a business friendly climate. A business friendly climate that four years of democrat rule tried to destroy. An advantage the progressives would happily exchange, enthusiastically exchange, for what the other New England states have if given the opportunity. (D’s and F’s if you were not paying attention.)
