Stockman slams Justice Department scheme to stamp out businesses Obama disagrees with
“Under Obama’s ‘Operation Choke Point’ banks are complaining that government agents are threatening them because they service legal businesses engaged in legal commerce. Often the customer is a gun retailer or other businesses that poses no risk, but differs with Obama’s political agenda,” said Stockman.
Thousands of gun retailers have had their bank accounts forcibly closed, despite engaging in no illegal activity whatsoever.
“This is just the latest example of the Obama administration exploiting executive power to target political opponents. It would appear the only purpose of Operation Choke Point is the choke the life out of businesspeople with political views that may differ from the President,” said Stockman.
