    Popular D.C. Burger Joint Forced to Shut Down

    Popular D.C. Burger Joint Forced to Shut Down « CBS DC

    One of the D.C. area’s iconic burger joints is no more.

    Ray’s Hell-Burger, where the likes of President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and the Russian president have gone for a juicy burger, has been shut down after failing to pay its rent.
    It's hard to keep a small business going in Obama's America.

    People had to pay rent in Bush's America too. The story makes no mention of any Obama policy hampering their ability to pay rent. DC certainly does not lack highly paid federal gov't employees that would make a fine customer base. Explain the linkage between Obama policy and this single restaurant no longer being profitable.

    the pay for government workers in the DC area was not high enough, so people stopped going to the burger joint to eat. Obama should have increased their wages

    Obama literally has a magic wand he uses to destroy small businesses.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Yep. Obama has clearly not grown gov't enough to support continued burger sales.

    Yep. We need a burger stimulus bill ASAP! Tax credits (refundable?) should be issued immediately to ensure that we the sheeple can pig out on demand!

    Yet McDonald's and Booger King get away using horse meat and pink slime as additives and still make $millions. America knows what it wants.
