"Since Mr. Foster's been mayor, we have less small businesses in the city of St. Petersburg."

"We cut business taxes so today 70 percent of our businesses don't pay a business tax."

A company with "20 employees" could go "out of business" because of health care law requirements to buy insurance.

Company may close, "all because government essentially says if they don't hire a lifeguard to watch their workers, they can't stay open."
