The economy is the biggest concern among Central Oregon business leaders who met with Congressman Greg Walden Wednesday. Cut spending and reduce the enormous national debt, now.   That’s what Bend business leaders are saying. Congressman Walden says he's hearing that all over his District: “We still have a problem with too many regulations that threaten growth in various industry segments. Certainly heard that. Also a concern about the health care law and what it may or may not do to those who are in business.” The half dozen business leaders were not impressed by the Obama Administration's efforts to spur the economy.   Still there are some promising signs. Attorney Jeff Eager says he's seeing fewer foreclosures and is seeing a few business start-ups, and that's something he did not see at all a year ago.  Business permits are up slightly in the City of Bend. All agreed the one thing they don't need is new taxes and more regulations. Walden says the new GOP House leadership is going to do everything they can to put the brakes on spending and try to reduce the $14-trillion national debt.
