The newest victim of Obama's experiment in free market-crushing economics is Sports Authority, which filed bankruptcy in March.

As Truth and Action has reported on the closure of what is now hundreds of retail giants, the liberals firmly believe that Obama has stimulated a recovery.
Truth and Action has been following the economic collapse of retail stores across the nation, with a projected 6000 stores closing.

For example, 1,784 Radio Shack stores are vanishing, 400 of the Office Depot/Office Max chain by 2016, and 340 Dollar Tree/Family Dollar stores.
