    As the owner of several small businesses, I know more about it than you. How many businesses do you own?
    In my lifetime I've started, owned and sold over 20 businesses. I know more about it than you do. And I understand being inbetween a government rock and hard place.

    It doesn't sound like you've done a good job of running those businesses if you're finding yourself in such difficulties. I've never had any problems complying with the law, even though my businesses have been in industries that are highly regulated

    Let's not get into any wand measuring contest. No need for that now!

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Have you ever run or started your own business?

    I know of many construction companies right now that plan on laying people off and reducing hours because of Obamacare. All the petty insults in the world can't change the economy reality that Obamacare is having on small business. You were warned this was going to happen, but you didn't care. The only thing that matters to people like you is ideology. That somehow a magical politician is going to pass a bill and everything will be fine. Wrong.

    So, there never been a new government regulation that caused you to make a Hobson's choice? I don't believe you.

    Yes, I've started and run many businesses. Haven't had one fail yet. And I've never had any problem complying with the law either

    And I'm not alone. Every year, thousands and thousands of people start new businesses that succeed. Many of them are people who immigrated to this country. If they can do it, so can anyone else.

    It takes a rightwinger to blame the president for their own failure to run a succesful business. It's just a part of their principled belief in "personal responsibility" (for everyone but themselves)

    None of my businesses were ever harmed by any govt regulation. In fact, almost all of those regs benefitted my businesses. At their worst, they were benign.

    Wow, the only way any of that is true is if you don't give a crap for your employees. In that case I had you pegged wrong, I thought you were more employee oriented and less robber baron.

    It's obvious that you've got nothing substantive or factual to argue. That's why you have to imagine that I've done something wrong with respect to my employees, though you know nothing about them, or if I even have any employees.

    This is why I don't believe you. You came off saying you've owned these businesses, as if that was relevent, but now you modify that to say you may not have ever had employees? Despite what they're telling you, addressing envelopes at home is not a business (for the purposes of this discussion).
