Who built whom?

Daily Iowegian

CENTERVILLE — The Daily Iowegian will publish an Editorial Question of the Week on the Opinion page.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about President Barack Obama's recent assertion in a campaign speech about how government helps small businesses thrive and "you didn't build that."

Mitt Romney's campaign is running ads that suggest the president doesn't think entrepreneurs build their own businesses.

Obama later said he was referring to public programs like education and infrastructure that helped businesses be successful.

So, the question this week is, "Is the president right? Did education and infrastructure help businesses become successful?"
