Do you know that small businesses in the United States of America employ 75% of all the people employed in America? It is true and sometimes that number floats even higher. In fact, if it weren’t for the small businesses in America the United States would not have much of an economy at all. Small businesses are the backbone of the United States economy. Anyone who tells you otherwise is blowing smoke.
Now then, let’s talk about taxes. You see, lower taxes for small businesses and individuals improve our economy. When small businesses have tax incentives to reinvest in their companies then that is what they do. When a small business invests in their company they buy more equipment and they need to hire more people to run that equipment. Also people need to be hired to make that equipment at another company and that is how it works folks.
The Democrats of course want to raise our taxes and you can see why I would be opposed to this. We all know the government is very inefficient and businesses are very efficient; businesses have to be efficient or they can’t make money. Government is only good at one thing; wasting money. In fact the government does that quite well. Do we really want to give them more money to waste?
As a small-business person I am quite happy with the tax incentives for reinvestment in my company and I’m actually very happy with the Bush administration and their policies for small business. We need less restrictions and regulations, fewer lawsuits and we need to keep the taxes lower. Why you ask? Well, it is quite simple, small businesses are the backbone of this nation and we should do everything we can to help them. Consider this when you vote in 2006.
