As I see small business owners struggling to get by in this economy, it makes me wonder why we continue to see an increase in taxes. The focus should be on what we can do to help small businesses grow. Once this is the government's focus, then we will be able to pave the way to a successful economy.
It is not fair to continue to take away the opportunity for growth from hardworking employers. Small businesses are responsible for most of the country's job growth. That being said, if taxes are persistently being raised, it will be even more difficult for businesses to offer the job growth necessary to get people back on their feet. The government needs to get spending under control before it's too late.
