Barack Obama has been out of office for five months, but the negative affects of what he did to this country are still being felt in a big way.
Gold and Silver Pawn Shop owner Rick Harrison just went on Fox Business Network to say that thanks to Obama, business in the U.S. is “literally a nightmare” right now.
“The effect of the eight years of Obama is finally showing up,” Harrison said. “We had .7 GDP [growth]…in the last quarter and if you figure GDP the way we did four years ago, that would be negative growth. Four years ago…they decided all R&D [suddenly] goes into the plus column instead of the expense column and…it was a way the administration actually boosted up GDP.”
He went on to say that Trump should make it easier to do business in the country. Harrison also said that he hopes the president will put an end to debilitating regulations and ObamaCare, as well as pass tax reform so he can open more businesses.
“It’s death by a thousand cuts — just my pawn business. The Obama administration made it illegal for me to loan any money to anyone in the military. I have one compliance guy just for a pawn shop. It’s everything from Homeland Security, FBI, the local police department, IRS – all these regulations I have to keep an eye on constantly and it’s just overwhelming for a small business,” he said.
