Who doesn't love a good rant?

We certainly do, and as usual, Steve Wynn, the CEO of casino company Wynn Resorts, delivered on his company's quarterly conference call today.

Via Seeking Alpha, here's the crux of it:

call today. Via Seeking Alpha , here's the crux of it: Image: AP I believe in

Image: AP

I believe in Las Vegas. I think its best days are ahead of it. But I'm afraid to do anything in the current political environment in the United States. You watch television and see what's going on on this debt ceiling issue. And what I consider to be a total lack of leadership from the President and nothing's going to get fixed until the President himself steps up and wrangles both parties in Congress. But everybody is so political, so focused on holding their job for the next year that the discussion in Washington is nauseating.

And I'm saying it bluntly, that this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in my lifetime. And I can prove it and I could spend the next 3 hours giving you examples of all of us in this market place that are frightened to death about all the new regulations, our healthcare costs escalate, regulations coming from left and right. A President that seems, that keeps using that word redistribution. Well, my customers and the companies that provide the vitality for the hospitality and restaurant industry, in the United States of America, they are frightened of this administration.And it makes you slow down and not invest your money. Everybody complains about how much money is on the side in America.

You bet and until we change the tempo and the conversation from Washington, it's not going to change. And those of us who have business opportunities and the capital to do it are going to sit in fear of the President. And a lot of people don't want to say that. They'll say, God, don't be attacking Obama. Well, this is Obama's deal and it's Obama that's responsible for this fear in America.

The guy keeps making speeches about redistribution and maybe we ought to do something to businesses that don't invest, their holding too much money. We haven't heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists. Everybody's afraid of the government and there's no need soft peddling it, it's the truth. It is the truth. And that's true of Democratic businessman and Republican businessman, and I am a Democratic businessman and I support Harry Reid. I support Democrats and Republicans. And I'm telling you that the business community in this company is frightened to death of the weird political philosophy of the President of the United States. And until he's gone, everybody's going to be sitting on their thumbs.

Later in the call, he rants again about how hard it is to visit America (due to Homeland Security and visa issues), and what that means for Chinese visitors.

@SocialismSucks: The lack of leadership by Obama is so appalling that it makes me physically ill, but I guess we should have expected very little of him--- when they had the first bi-partisan conference and he started out the meeting with 'I won". Anybody running a business is scared to death of the new regulations from EPA, OSHA, the Zero Tolerance at Airport but 100% Tolerance at the border for illegals, new Czars and their powers to direct agencies, the decline of the dollar, and OBAMAGEDDON (The Healthcare Act).

Wynn looking at the drastic housing collapse in Vegas, of course, will support anyone who keeps bringing "Money forced out of the American taxpayers pocket " into Vegas to help prop up the their declining tax revenues. Wynn needs workers. He also needs local clients. Both need a place to live. Local jobs make living in Vegas possible. The real skinny here is Wynn knows this credit line is limited.

You are techically right though, the article saysing nothing about "health care reform" since the purpose of Obamacare was not to "reform" health care. It should be clear to any objective, reasonably intelligent person by now that the purpose was to expand the federal gov'ts control over We the People and as a bonus, demolish the 'evil' health insurance industry.

@SocialismSucks: One of the smartest business guys in the game just put it too Obama and this train wreck of an administration. Why on earth would any business hire in this economy? Who would invest now with the threat of being punished if you are successful? The rich are sitting this economy out, they have the money on the sidelines exactly where it should be while this dummy of a potus flails about trying to make Socialism work. It won't, the economy will continue down the tubes and all you libs will try to blame Bush. Its over for Obama, he's done! He failed completely and so will his Socialist ideals. Its just going to be a while before we can repair the damage. The rich will stay rich. They are the smart ones. Buy low and sell high, duh! And you can't buy low until the economy tanks. That has been true since mankind invented investing. They see whats going on with this economy and they will wait until it hits rock bottom and they are not in the cross hairs of Government before they jump back in. They are going to buy low, wait for a recovery and sell high. If that doesn't make sense to you then you obviously must be a liberal. Steve Wynn for Prez!.

@End the Wars: Maybe YOU should read the article, and wake up, 'End the

Wars'. Look for the part where he said, "

regulations, our healthcare costs escalate, regulations coming from left and right." That's the reference to health care reform. Anyone who's KoolAid-free at this point recognizes that ObamaCare will drive up costs and create rationing, and that's what I believe Mr. Wynn is referencing. And if he can find the tooth fairy, a unicorn, and the Easter bunny, that's where he'll find what he's looking for - a Democrat that understands how business works best in the United States.

@john e nichols: john e nichols, Socialism existed before Obama even arrived. Even Bush is just as socialist as Obama is because Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and all other social programs existed under both Republican and Democrat presidents. Anyone who specifically points a finger at Obama as being "socialist" is ignorant of the facts that Socialism has existed in America for many decades. There's nothing wrong with Socialist countries because the level of happiness and lifestyle in those countries are far better than here in America as shown in numerous studies and research.

Having 100% Capitalism will only lead this country into becoming a third world country as it is already heading there with the Republican efforts to widen the gap between the rich and the poor by taxing the middle and lower class more and more and shifting the money from those two classes to the wealthy in order to support corporate welfare and gluttony.

Corporations pay no taxes, and the middle and lower classes are expected by the Republicans to send them money so that these corporations can take OUR money to create jobs overseas. This is why these corporations are flush with cash, and you actually think this is better than Socialism????

Pennsylvania Avenue has no idea how to create jobs as he has no private sector experience. Nor does the vast majority of his administration and cabinet. Try a night class in non-Keynesian economics. It could help.

@makecapitalismhistory: Industry has been forced offshore because of high taxes and over-regulation. That is why there is no industry! Companies would MUCH prefer to produce in America! Companies have to compete world wide (I know you hate the C word), but I have many more facts to prove my claims than a couple of little charts fed to you by a liberal "professor".

And History

"Communism has been the greatest social engineering experiment we have ever seen. It failed utterly and in doing so it killed over 100,000,000 men, women, and children, not to mention the near 30,000,000 of its subjects that died in its often aggressive wars and the rebellions it provoked.

But there is a larger lesson to be learned from this horrendous sacrifice to one ideology. That is that no one can be trusted with power.

The more power the center has to impose the beliefs of an ideological or religious elite or impose the whims of a dictator, the more likely human lives are to be sacrificed.

This is but one reason, but perhaps the most important one, for fostering liberal democracy." History, You may think you are smarter than the thugs that control the second bounce after a "revolution"

@Vote Loud: High taxes and overregulation ? And you are sure that you don't have that in Germany ??? No, it's because your investment ratio was lower than in Germany. So the germans are more productive while having even higher labor costs and taxes.

@makecapitalismhistory: Maybe you should relocate to one of those socialist paradise of which you dream. I'm sure they'd welcome you with open arms.

Were you even alive when Reagan was president? He cut taxes with the promise of a 3:1 ratio on spending. To make it simple for the socialists here, that means that for every $1 of tax cuts, Congress promised $3 of spending reductions. Do you think the $3 of spending reductions ever happened?

But one parting comment. You rely on blogs and socialist media. When someone challenges your ideas, you begin the name calling. Grow up.

@makecapitalismhistory: Son, You need to go back to Media Matters and your favorite newsCOMIC lightweight, Jon Stewart! You are WAY over your head in here, young man! [Summary of the Joint Economic Committee of the Congress, July 20. 1995]:

With four years of data on the current economic recovery (extending back to the Bush Administration), it is now possible to tally up the scorecard and compare the Bush/Clinton recovery that started in 1991 with the Reagan recovery that began in 1982.

[1] President Clinton has boasted that his policies have spurred economic growth, added jobs, and helped the middle class.

However, the data show that the Bush/Clinton recovery is weak compared to the Reagan recovery along several important measures.

Both economic growth and job creation in the current recovery lag behind the Reagan recovery by two full years.

The middle class is suffering an actual loss in real median family income, while during the Reagan recovery it gained.

Moreover, tax revenues increased more rapidly under Reagan's tax cuts than under the Bush/Clinton tax increases.

@firstonsecond: Business have cut their cost close to the bone including labor cost. Labor cost is one of the most expensive items on a P&L. obama has put new regulations, as Wynn stated, costing business over 41 billion dollars. obama did this in his first 2 years in office. This is reported by GAO. obama continues his anti business class warfare rhetoric stopping business growth and hiring in it's tracks. obama is killing job creation for the middle class all by himself and his socialist agenda.
