    Smothering firms

    The jobs that poor americans need will be created by companies. Smothering firms in red tape is not the way to help them.

    What does the captioned phrase mean in the above sentence?

    Thanks!

    Re: Smothering firms

    Have you looked "smother" up in a dictionary?
