A corporate cheif has a stern warning for the Federal Government; and this isn’t the CEO of some mid-level company–we’re talking McDonalds.

Jim Skiiner, the top official at McDonalds, says in order to “get the ox out of the ditch”  or get the economy started,  taxes need to be lowered, government spending cut, and consumer confidence restored.   He also said American based businesses pay some of the highest corporate taxes in the world, there needs to be some leveling.   According to the British UK Telegraph newspaper, who carried the comments,  Obama’s opponents will jump all over Skinner’s remarks as a prime example of what is wrong with the Obama Administration’s handling of the economy.
