AS A SMALL BUSINESS OWNER/ENTREPRENEUR, I SUPPORT THE FOLLOWING KEY ELEMENTS OF ANY JOB CREATION OR ECONOMIC RECOVERY PLAN FOR THIS GREAT COUNTRY:
America is ranked last in the world in corporate tax rates, making it the least competitive in the industrial world. I support lowering our corporate tax rate from 39.2% to 15%, thus making America one of the most competitive in the world.
Investment capital is oxygen to entrepreneurs, small business and startups. Without capital, job creators can't grow their businesses. I support the elimination of capital gains taxes in America.
The high price of energy acts as an indirect tax on American business which ultimately bears the costs and is forced to pass along those costs through increased prices to consumers. I support a robust and responsible increase in domestic production of all forms of domestic energy sources, from oil to coal to natural gas, wind and solar.
The regulatory landscape has become increasingly complex and burdensome for businesses seeking to grow and expand. I support a review of all federal regulations with the goal of eliminating those rules that do not appreciable reduce safety or risk to consumers or the environment.
