My partner and I started the barbeque company in 1995 in Northern Virginia. Since then, we have grown to 60 employees. Together with them, we built this successful business.
In the past three years, our sales have stopped growing. When the Federal Reserve covers the US Deficit by printing more money, the cost of food goes up due to inflation, ruining our margins. Also the cost of gas has doubled, taking descretionary income from our existng and potential customers. With Obamacare, we add another layer of taxes and expenses we pay just for hiring someone. For these reasons, small businesses which were growing at 20% a year before Obama came to office are now flat or dying.
