Deli owner wears anti-Obama shirt while catering Obama campaign stop

An Iowa deli owner agreed to serve President Obama's team and the reporters covering him Wednesday -- but not without donning a shirt poking fun at one of the president's most infamous lines. 

According to The Washington Post, Ross Murty, co-owner of the Village Corner Deli, wore a shirt emblazoned with the words 

"Government didn't build my business. I did" as he served up food to the White House press corps. 

"No one from the government was there when we were sweating it, when we were building this business," Murty reportedly said, explaining his choice of attire. The shirt referenced Obama's "you didn't build that" comment. 

Murty said his business partner, a Democrat, was the one who agreed to host for the campaign stop. But Murty, while a Republican, said he wouldn't turn away anybody. 

He voiced his political beliefs with a shirt instead.
