Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JPMorgan Chase called out the GOP for their gridlock over healthcare. ““It’s almost an embarrassment being an American citizen traveling around the world and listening to the stupid sh*t we have to deal with in this country,” said Dimon in an interview with Fox.
“Since the Great Recession, which is now 8 years old, we’ve been growing at 1.5 to 2 percent in spite of stupidity and political gridlock, because the American business sector is powerful and strong,” said Dimon.
“Because the American business sector is powerful and strong, and is going to grow regardless of — people wake up in the morning, they want to feed their kids, they want to buy a home, they want to do things, the same with American businesses. It would be much stronger growth had we made intelligent decisions and were there not gridlock,” said Dimon.
“I’m going to be a broken record until this gets done. We are unable to build bridges, we’re unable to build airports, our inner city school kids are not graduating. I don’t buy the argument that we’re relegated to this forever. We’re not. If this administration can make breakthroughs in taxes and infrastructure, regulatory reform,” said Dimon.
“Unfortunately people write about this saying like it’s for corporations. It’s not for corporations. Competitive taxes are important for business and business growth, which is important for jobs and wage growth,” explained Dimon. Do you think he’s right? Check out the video below.
