A group of billionaires and elitists that include Michael Bloomberg and Warren Buffett penned an editorial that ran in Wednesday’s USA Today. In it, the writers opined that the best way to grow the economy was to grow small businesses. “Helping them expand—to get their ideas off the ground—is one of the best ways to support economic growth,” it read.
Of course, what was left unsaid is that they’d prefer only select businesses get off the ground. In other words, mom-and-pop gun shops need not apply.
For more than a decade, Bloomberg has been throwing his money against the firearms industry, hoping to shut it—and every small-business owner inside of it—down. So while he may lend his name to a letter that proclaims “we must do more to help small businesses drive a new generation of growth” … rest assured he means elitist-approved, liberal-endorsed businesses only.
