    So you're going to maintain that with higher costs of regulatory compliance, higher taxes, and higher costs of medical insurance coverage things are a lot easier now?

    Blame all those liberal vegans who came to town with Obama to replace those God-fearing steak eaters that are the hallmark of a Republican administration.

    And Helix, the Obama administration's EPA will want to regulate your water main break as toxic waste.

    It's hard to keep a small business going in Obama's America.
    From the clientelle you listed - Obama, Biden, Putin - perhaps there aren't enough socialists/communists in DC to keep the place going or perhaps people in DC are choosy about whom they dine with.

    Some guy fails to pay his bills and its the fault of the President. Got it.


    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?

    Not at all. You posted the story and made a SPECIFIC assertion about the cause of this restaurant's failure - back it up. Using general posts about related subjects are OK, iff they can be linked to the OP story. Are you asserting the PPACA costs are the issue here? If so, then lindly provide a link to support it, otherwise accept my point.

    You must be a racist and think that "they" all look alike.
