"Pawn Star" Rick Harrison is no fan of Obamacare.
The owner of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas, Nev., and star of the History Channel's "Pawn Stars" slammed President Barack Obama's signature health care law in a recent interview with conservative radio show host Mark Levin.
Harrison said the law is likely to hurt health care coverage for his shop's 63 employees, though he hasn't had time to read through all the specifics. He also offered a robust defense of the free market system.
I truly believe that if government just stepped out of the way we would have a trade surplus in this country, we'd be energy-independent, we would have full employment. And basically, like it used to be in this country, there would be charitable hospitals. There would barely be a health care problem.
Harrison gained a measure of famed after the Pawn Stars launch in 2009. The show chronicles the daily activities at the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, a 24-hour family business opened in 1989 and operated by Rick Harrison, his father, family patriarch Richard "Old Man" Harrison, Rick's son Corey "Big Hoss" Harrison, and Corey's childhood friend, Austin "Chumlee" Russell.
"Pawn Stars" is now the History Channel's highest-rated show. On many episodes Rick Harrison displays a deep knowledge of U.S. history, helpful for haggling with potential sellers. His shop also buys old currency from time to time. To that end, Harrison doesn't much care for the Federal Reserve. He raised concerns in a recent CNBC interview.
You have the government trying to make things more difficult for businesses to operate. And you have the Fed trying to compensate for it. It can't go on forever that way. I have a problem when we have 7 percent of GDP based off of borrowed and printed money.
If we keep on printing money things are going to get bad. It's a matter of math.
