    Probably because Obama can't control the landlords (remember, you want government out of business so they can charge whatever they can get), so because the landlord was a greedy fuck, he jacked up the price so high that they finally went out of business.

    Capitalism at it's finest! Apparently it works best on the Bain Capital model.

    Perhaps you should take an economics class and understand the answer for yourself. :eusa_clap:

    I'm failing to see what your complaint is here.

    This is an act of "Creative Destruction" as Romney called it.

    The owner of that building feels that he can get a bigger rent payment from a new tenant, so either the Deli pays up, or they go out of business.

    Given how you guys on the right worship greed as the greatest of all virtues, I'm just not seeing what your problem here is. Wasn't a government program that put them out, it was the greed of another capitalist.
