Sen. Tillis, help small businesses like mine Bush vs. self-serving former presidents
With the economy finally recovering, I don’t want to go into a tailspin again. The Health Insurance Tax (HIT) will cause small businesses to struggle, so Congress needs to delay it before this session is out.
Unless the HIT is suspended, small businesses will likely have to offer plans with unimaginably high deductibles, cut employees or shut down.
If enough businesses do that, we’ll go right back to high unemployment and another recession, and that’s not fair to anyone.
It’s also not right that large corporations get breaks while small businesses like my flower shop get the HIT. We’re all just trying to make a living and provide benefits to our employees.
Sen. Thom Tillis needs to vote to delay the HIT
In response to Keith Larson “No comparison between Bush and you-know-who” (Dec. 5 Opinion):
I, too, was struck by the comparison between President George H.W. Bush and you know who. But, I was also struck by the comparison between a truly great man who served with great distinction and the two egotistic, narcissistic, selfserving former presidents sitting in the pews.
