This year, Congress has even learned about administration initiatives not from the White House, or the agencies implementing them, but from the press or their own constituents.

Thus it was with Operation Choke Point, an interdepartmental program designed to cripple or eliminate completely legal businesses just because the administration doesn’t like them. The idea for the program apparently came from a zealous and perhaps overly ambitious prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Philadelphia, who suggested to his superiors that the government could persuade banks to call loans, refuse to make loans or otherwise do business with certain industries, forcing many enterprises to close.

The devious designs of Operation Choke Point

officials provided a much more extensive list of objectionable “high-risk” business types to bankers. The list included gun dealers and manufacturers as well as firearms retailers, pawn shops and check cashing places.

It sound like Obama and the democrats have found a new way to get around the congress and violate the Second Amendment.

Exposing themselves. There's already a lawsuit by payday lenders affected by it. Wonder if Second Amendment supporting industries can bring one about. It's driven 30 business industries off to Bitcoin instead of banking. Now if only more stand up to it.
