Small Business Protests Cap and Tax

McArthur's Bakery on Lemay Ferry Road, exercised their freedom of speech to protest Rep. Russ Carnahan's (D-MO) vote in support of Cap and Tax (HR 2454). Their sign read: "Russ Carnahan voted to close us and other small business;" however, they've agreed to take it down pending a discussion with Rep. Carnahan. Randy McArthur, President and CEO of McArthur's, is working with the Congressman's office to setup a face-to-face meeting.

Dana Loesch reported on the sign on her Sunday evening radio show and has a copy of the letter that Randy sent to Russ. It reads in part:
You sir are not good for small business. And we are letting all of our customers and neighbors know it.
More to follow including a discussion with Randy and David McArthur, Ed Martin, and myself...

This is just a one minute teaser from the fifteen minute discussion. I ask Randy about his profit margin; he responds; and then David comments about the increase in energy costs caused by Cap and Tax. The rest of the interview will take me a couple of days to post—I've got some Tea Party prep and real work to do.

I own a relatively recession proof business but not a Government Tax proof one so my hats off to McArthurs for what they are doing. If they are the only conservative food business left in town, my family will be there every day 3 times a day.
