Buying guns from a reputable firearms store is protecting me? Sounds more like the typical Nazi selective enforcement that's been used by this administration repeatedly.

How many businesses under attack by DumBama does this make? Boeing, American Indians, cigarette shops, banks and credit card institutions, Gibson Guitars, suntan salons, auto dealerships..........

This is the most anti-business President I've seen in my entire life. And then you jokers blame Republicans because we don't have enough job growth? WTF would want to start or expand a business under this administration? Why would anybody want to start a business when you have a President that hates business?

Just because the Teabag rag you read chose to write about a couple of gun dealers crying about the law doesn't mean that the government is selectively enforcing the law. You just gobble up anything they tell you.

Of course, how crazy of those T-baggers:
‘High risk’ label from feds puts gun sellers in banks’ crosshairs, hurts business
Obama plan pressures financial institutions
Gun retailers say the Obama administration is trying to put them out of business with regulations and investigations that bypass Congress and choke off their lines of credit, freeze their assets and prohibit online sales.
Since 2011, regulators have increased scrutiny on banks’ customers. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. in 2011 urged banks to better manage the risks of their merchant customers who employ payment processors, such as PayPal, for credit card transactions. The FDIC listed gun retailers as “high risk” along with porn stores and drug paraphernalia shops.
Meanwhile, the Justice Department has launched Operation Choke Point, a credit card fraud probe focusing on banks and payment processors. The threat of enforcement has prompted some banks to cut ties with online gun retailers, even if those companies have valid licenses and good credit histories.
“This administration has very clearly told the banking industry which customers they feel represent ‘reputational risk’ to do business with,” said Peter Weinstock, a lawyer at Hunton & Williams LLP.“So financial institutions are reacting to this extraordinary enforcement arsenal by being ultra-conservative in who they do business with: Any companies that engage in any margin of risk as defined by this administration are being dropped.”
A Justice Department representative said the agency is conducting several investigations that aim to hold accountable banks “who are knowingly assisting fraudulent merchants who harm consumers.”
“We’re committed to ensuring that our efforts to combat fraud do not discourage or inhibit the lawful conduct of these honest merchants,” the Justice Department said in a May 7 blog post.
But gun retailers say their businesses are being targeted in the executive branch’s efforts:
• T.R. Liberti, owner and operator of Top Gun Firearms Training & Supply in Miami, has felt the sting firsthand. Last month, his local bank, BankUnited N.A., dumped his online business from its service.
An explanatory email from the bank said:“This letter in no way reflects any derogatory reasons for such action on your behalf. But rather one of industry. Unfortunately your company’s line of business is not commensurate with the industries we work with.”
• Black Rifle Armory in Henderson, Nevada, had its bank accounts frozen this month as the bank tried to determine whether any of Black Rifle’s online transactions were suspicious.

That's a lovely propaganda opinion piece from a right wing rag but I am more concerned with facts than opinions from Tea Baggers. Like the FACT that America is becoming more Liberal. A FACT that I read today.

If you want some of that government money, all you have to do is get older like your father did. You know, that ss cash you guys happily take but want to deny the younger generations.

Interesting post - especially that last paragraph. Mr. Butler changed his mind just as Obama took office.:
"I would find this more persuasive if there were evidence that the shift predated President Obama’s embrace of the policy. But in 2006, the Heritage Foundation supported Gov. Mitt Romney’s plan to pass an individual mandate in Massachusetts. The state of health-care policy knowledge on risk pools and automatic enrollment did not change very much between 2006 and 2009, and Romney’s mandate required only slightly less comprehensive insurance coverage than Obama’s mandate: a 56 percent actuarial value versus a 60 percent actuarial value, for those who want to get wonky about it."
the Hertiage Foundation's plan was scraped years ago but Obama wanted to use Romneycare to justify Obamacare and I knew people in Ultra Liberal Massachusetts who hated Romneycare and said you didnt want it on a national level which they were right and alot of businesses closed in Massachusetts to escape Romneycare.

Yes, the Heritage Foundation quit supporting its own plan right around the time that Obama took office and started to work on implementing it. Makes me think that they were never sincerely interested in fixing healthcare, but just used that plan to derail the Clintons' healthcare reform efforts in the 1990s.

A 2013 poll of Massachusetts citizens found that the overwhelming majority were satisfied with their healthcare.

"As has been the case since 2004, most Massachusetts residents are generally satisfied with the health care they receive. Nearly six-in-ten residents (56%) are very satisfied with the health care they received last year, and another 28% are somewhat satisfied. These numbers have remained highly stable for the past eight years."

Interesting then that the conservative magazine Forbes rates Massachusetts as one of the "Best States for Business":

"One bright spot in the northeast is No. 18 Massachusetts thanks to the dynamic Boston economy which is strong in growth industries like healthcare, education and technology. Business and living costs are among the highest in the country, but the state ranks first overall in quality of life and has one of the most educated labor forces in the U.S."

Romneycare a big bust

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

By:Michael Graham

As governor, Mitt Romney accomplished a feat that most Republicans would have thought impossible. With the single stroke of a pen he convinced the liberal population of Massachusetts that they, too, hate government-run health care.

As a health care plan, Romneycare is an unmitigated fiasco. It has caused costs to skyrocket, insurance premiums to soar and nonprofit providers like Blue Cross to suffer hundreds of millions of dollars in losses.

hate to bust your bubble but Massachusetts has higher taxes and tax rates on businesses and individuals compared to Indiana which ranks 6 and Massachusetts ranks 46 in the 2014 best & worst states for business to operate near the bottom and Massachusetts is considered the most liberal state in the US.

Massachusetts liberal

A Massachusetts liberal is a typically ultra-liberal in or from Massachusetts, in many ways the most liberal state in the United States. It is the only state where it is a crime, with a mandatory prison sentence of at least one year, to transport a lawfully owned gun for a lawful purpose in an automobile without a special permit. Out-of-state drivers traveling to hunting or gun competitions in the Northeast have to choose between going hours out of their way to avoid Massachusetts, or spending hours attempting to obtain a permit.
