From the view of business, to what extent have Tea Party and intents improved the business climate?

They used their numbers, energy, and ideological fervor to shut down the Republican traditionalists – an almost to shut down government.

A major force driving the fervor of Tea Party members and other radical Republicans is to get government off the backs of citizens. In the arena of business, this entails de-regulation, reduced taxation, and getting government out of the business of business (through privatization). Remarkably, the Republican Speaker of the House – John Boehner – was powerless to shape the Tea Party agenda.

From the perspective of business, to what extent have Tea Party actions and intents improved the business climate? If you were CEO of the major corporation, what view might you hold about Tea Party activity? What would be your view if you were a small business owner?
