GDP Slows to 1.5% -- Red Tape vs. Small Business -- an infographic

My Congressman, Randy Hultgren, (R-IL), in his  recent constituent newsletter passed along a sound bite of his Congressional comments.  Behind him was this placard, showing the government red tape small business owners, or business owners, in general, have to put up with.  View a larger version of the graphic by clicking here.  Which word best describes the government’s effect on business?  My submission, chokehold.
