THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK 35 BUDGET STRUGGLES TURN SERIOUS continued from page 10 Small businesses are struggling with sluggish economic growth to which excessive government regulation, tax burdens and the looming threat of inflation contribute. If we are to solve our debt problems it must be with an economic resurgence which will provide employment, a greater tax base, and a more competitive position in the new global economy. This means the debt problem must The problem is that some of the proposals for meeting the shortfall, ....rely more on tax increase proposals than on deep spending cuts. be solved without more crippling taxes but, instead, the same fiscal discipline which businesses and individuals must use if they intend to survive. The President’s budget plan raises taxes on small business owners without first forcing significant tax cuts. The National Federation of Independent Businesses has pointed out that the spending blueprint currently being presented would pay for the deficit with tax increases that would raise unemployment taxes, estate taxes and individual tax rates. In fact, the President has said he proposes to increase taxes on couples earning above 0,000 and the administration has plans to help states pay for rising unemployment cost with a .5 billion increase in payroll taxes. It’s time to get real. Raising taxes on businesses and individuals just as the economy is attempting a comeback from the Great Recession will be selfdefeating. We must address our debt but it must be addressed on the spending side. Meaningful cuts need to be put in place starting with a reduction in wasteful and duplicative federal agency programs. This must be coupled with the difficult but necessary act of reducing entitlements. We will all feel the pain. But this will be nothing compared to the pain we would feel the day the financial markets say no to continuing to fund the operation of our government.
