Conservatives would like you to believe the combination of Obamacare, taxes, and increased regulations has led to small businesses not hiring. This has been the Republican mantra since Obama took office. This is a narrative they push that is just not backed up by the facts.
Obamacare: Businesses that employ less than 50 people are not required to provide heath insurance under Obamacare. But they are given a tax break if they do.
Taxes: Obama has lowered taxes on small Businesses.
Regulations: Most small businesses like regulations because they keep the playing field even. As long as the regulations affect everyone equally they adjust.
The problem is Obama is hitting Big Business with higher taxes and more regulations. This is because they have been given preferential treatment for the past 30 yrs by the Republican party and it’s time to rein them back in. They are experiencing record profits and paying CEO’s record salaries. They pollute our water and air with impunity. They have prayed on the middleclass and swept small businesses aside. It’s time to stand up to Corporate America and demand They respect this Country and give back a little of what it has provided them.
