    If I ever default on a bill when a Republican is at 1600 Penn, you just gave me the perfect excuse. Of course, its not really perfect now is it?
    Sometimes complex concepts are difficult for citizens to grasp. If you have ever run a business you'd be much more equipped to discern the point. Liberals have never been able to attain the intelligence to realize regulation, taxation, and litigation are the bane to a strong free market capitalistic economy. Of course then again liberals think government spending and some term they invent called aggregate demand are REALVILLE.

    Sorry, but the fact of the matter is that small businesses face more difficult times as a result of government policies instituted by this President. That's just a fact. It stands to reason that some businesses that were getting by before won't be able to make it now.

    A person would think that Obama's your child the way you guys jump to defend him from responsibility for anything.

    It's hard to keep a small business going in Obama's America.

    A few things come to mind:

    1. Obama's line that "now's not the time for profits".

    That's what happens when there are no profits. If the owner made a pile... he would most likely have expanded. This is lost on Socialists like Obama and his followers... which leads me to...

    2. He obviously didn't pay enough taxes... he needed to pay more. Let him beg to the government to help his business stay afloat.

    and...

    3. He probably needed to be regulated more.

    I wonder... when is there going to be a Burger Joint bailout plan?
    The Clintons are what happens...
    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.

    I had two businesses. Did rather well at them. I paid my tax obligation and obeyed the laws. So try again.

    Yet, oddly enough, the most successful economies in the world have significant levels of regulation, taxation and litigation.

    So you're out of touch with conditions for businesses lately, I take it. Are you just going to completely deny that additional taxes and expenses connected to additional regulations and the cost of compliance as well as current and future medical insurance costs make it more difficult to get by?

    Running a business is hard work. There are a million details that need your attention. It's not something that everyone can do. for all their whining, the rightwingers still cant give one example of a viable business going under because of govt regulation
