    So yes, not gouging your customers is a good way to run a business.
    So a restaurant raises the price of a sandwich from $4.00 to $4.25 and they're gouging their customers?

    Depends on the quality of the sandwich.


    And probably not because he had to raise it due to yet another fee or another tax increase.

    Just like the 80s and 90s, heh? No thanks.

    Sure, if business was booming but you still weren't profiting you might consider raising prices. But in the current situation, where you're not profiting because you've already lost a sizable number of customers, raising prices seems like a very stupid thing to do.

    And the quality of the Federal sandwich is pretty close to pure sewage. It would be gouging if we cut the budget by only 10%,

    Not much. Gingrich and crew did a fine job. However, I was not talking about the economy. I was talking about the failed promises [read: lies] of the Democrats to cut spending in exchange for increased taxes.

    Get your head off taxes for a sec: a bad businessman would refuse to look at prices if he was not making a profit. Period.

    Yea...remember when we were told a 39.6% rate would destroy the economy? And that hiking the minimum wage would cause us to LOSE jobs.

    God, the 1990s were SOOOO terrible. What an awful time to be in business. It was like you were under constant attack.
