The President and Republicans in Congress are trying to pass a tax plan that will give massive tax cuts to Big Business and the super wealthy, by gutting Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, Education and other key public programs.
Politicians, pundits, and the media want to hear from small business owners, but too often big business dominates the narrative. Traditional business associations and corporate lobbyists speak for small business owners, rather than letting Main Street business owners speak for yourself. It's time to take back your voice and set the record straight on the issues impacting your business and your community. Share your story in the box below.
Here are some questions to get you going:
Big business groups are saying the #1 thing that small businesses need are tax breaks. We want to hear from you though. As a small business owner, what do you need most for your business to be successful?
What government programs are particularly important to you, your business and your customers? (i.e. Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, education, infrastructure, etc.)
What is it like to compete with big corporations? Share a story about when you have needed to compete with them.
From what you know of the November 2017 tax bills in Congress, do you think these tax plans create and economy that helps small businesses?
