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...
Update: 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.
