YG Network Warns of Onerous Regulations

A new video from the center-right issues advocacy group YG Network argues that government bureaucracy and growing regulation are hindering the building blocks of growth -- entrepreneurship and small businesses.

The video, a greatest hits montage of YG Network's Feb. 6 summit, features talks from business leaders like Steve Case as well as House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.).

"The regulatory environment has been growing for as long as I've been in business, a little bit more and a little bit and a little bit more, and it's become onerous because there's just so much of it," said Joe Scarlett, the founder of the Scarlett Leadership Institute.

Scott talked about how "most of the remedies that business owners want have nothing to do with Washington."

He added that there is a "philosophical disconnect" in Washington. "There's a philosophy that simply says that it is our responsibility to divide the pie as equally as possible," he said. "The other side of the coin simply says that we have to grow the pie, to unleash the individual and let's see what their maximum potential is."
