Could you take a loss of one fourth of your income and survive? Yes, it is possible (I took a bigger hit than that some years ago). But here is an instance where deliberate interference by the feral gooberment caused a state government to take a 26% loss of businesses and did nothing to mitigate the damage from their malfeasance. This country needs some hangings, and soon. This is just one state and I suspect the other 49 were similarly abused. Anybody got figures on that?
