    Exactly. You gotta win at the local level before you start winning state and eventually, national races. That's the main problem with third party candidates at the moment. Part of the reason is money(they don't have the fundraising prowess of the two major political parties), lack of exposure(although third party candidates tend to get more attention at the state and local level) and that they choose candidates that tend to be kooky or extreme. You can't win if you don't have some moderate-type candidates in your party.

    I think you're ignoring the fact that not every business has a multi-millionare sitting at the top, hoarding all the profits into a private bank account. Some do operate on razor thin margins and the only way for them to stay afloat with the new law taking effect is to cut full-time workers into part-timers. Is that what they want to do? No, probably not. But do they have to do it as a financial decision because of a terrible new law? Yes.

    I don't think Olive Garden operates on a razor-thin margin, though. Most of the companies mentioned in the article are huge.
