For some unfathomable reason Congress seems convinced that it can suspend the laws of human nature by simply passing a bill. The current incarnation of Obamacare pending in the House is but another example of this folly.

Obamacare will kill small business

By SoundOffSister | November 4, 2009 |

It will become abundantly clear to you after reading what follows that no one in Congress has ever either owned a small business, or, been employed by one.  And, should Obamacare pass, it is highly unlikely they ever will.
