Letter: State House needs new business model

To the editor:

Our elected officials’ constant need for more of our tax dollars to fuel the political machine that mismanages the state’s growing cost of government continues to cripple small businesses and act as a deterrent to expansion and growth.

Between the recent return to an increased Social Security tax and the governor’s recent proposal to add nearly $2 billion to this year’s budget, small companies can no longer tread water trying to stay afloat in today’s economy.

We all need to remember that, when the State House talks about “new revenues,” it means new taxes and fees.

It is time that the state and federal governments follow the rules of today’s small businesses: Do more with less, and do it more efficiently.
