Tax burdens will only hurt main street America [UPDATED]Published 9:06am Wednesday, May 22, 2013 Updated 11:08am Wednesday, May 22, 2013
Earlier this week a letter to the editor caught my attention. It was a letter written by Lisa Workman from the Fergus Fall Area Chamber of Commerce. In this letter she expressed her concern over the upcoming increase in taxes that was put into place by the most recent Legislative Session which was lead by Democrats.
Like Lisa, I share the concern for what these taxes will do to our small businesses. These extra burdens put into place by the democrats will only hurt main street America. The backbone of our economy and our livelihood is in jeopardy with this massive overreach.
As Ms. Workman stated this deficient will take care of itself, without raising taxes on the hardworking tax payers. However, the democrats insist that everybody dig a little deeper to grow government and invest unwanted issues.
It’s my goal to support small business and to make sure that the state is spending every dollar efficiently. This massive tax by the DFL leaders this past session was something that was very disappointing to me and I did not support it. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or comments at my office at anytime.
