The Biden Administration’s Attack on Small Businesses

The American people face more empty promises from The Biden Administration as his presidency spirals out of control with inflation, taxes, and uncertainty. To avoid drowning in the surge of inflation, most small business owners have to raise prices to make ends meet. Others are choosing to operate in the red since they are still not back up to pre-pandemic levels, says the Washington Times. Only 7% of small businesses are fully recovered from the pandemic.  

In 2021, many hard-working Americans were still struggling to stay afloat while the media was swept off their feet by the idea of The Build Back Better Plan. This $1.7 trillion package was proposed to fund an array of social investments from lower education and healthcare costs to extending the expanded child tax credit, says Forbes. The White House claimed “the working class is the back bone of the country. For too long, the economy has worked for those at the top, while working families get the short end of the stick.” Their rhetoric so far has been uninspiring to the American people and Senators in their own party. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) challenged Biden’s proposal by stating, “I’ve never found out that you can lower costs by spending more.”  

Small business owners continue to live in fear of more tax increases after reviewing Biden’s Fiscal Year 2023 budget proposal that includes at least 36 direct tax hikes on Americans. Those new taxes stack up to $2.5 trillion over the next decade. Tax increases include erasing much of the 2017 tax cuts, which helped bring unemployment levels to historic lows and economic growth to historic highs following its passage. In our day-to-day lives, we will be experiencing higher prices of goods and services due to this change, and tax increases would only make the situation worse for consumers. A 2020 study by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that 31% of the corporate tax falls on consumers. Americans are already scraping to make ends meet as inflation hits its highest reading in 40 years, so how will they weather more tax hikes and bad economic news?  

Biden plans to increase the top income tax rate to 39.6%, hitting small businesses organized as sole proprietorships, LLCs, partnerships, and S-corps. He created a new “billionaire’s minimum tax,” which would tax unrealized gains for the first time in history. He doubles the number of families subject to the hated death tax. The budget also proposes to repeal deferral of gain from 1031 like-kind exchanges. That would complicate things for small real estate investors by forcing them to forego new investments or take on unneeded debt. Small businesses of all shapes and sizes would come out on the losing end if these policies were implemented.    

Hardworking Americans have been weathering the storm since the pandemic, but there seems to be no ray of hope in sight under this administration and current leadership in Congress. Voters in November will decide if Democrats in Congress truly have America’s small businesses’ best interests in mind.

The question of the day, what do ANTIFA, BLM and Democrats have in common? ANSWER: their primary target, small business.

This mask mandate of the Democrats, small businesses are dropping like flies. Here in California, commercial vacancy’s gone ballistic. Sad sight to see, the policy community’s abuse of COVID, to impinge on our Founding Father’s 1st amendment, is snuffing-out small business here in California.

Fundamentally, the issue is that the current administration does not care one iota about the general public, small businesses, individuals at every level, race, gender or bend……it remains simply a matter of keeping power, greedily grabbing all they can and letting the rest of the country fall into the abyss.
Even the repubs for the most part are included here…..their history does not bode well for their capacity to help….they are no better than the dems in most cases. So…..get out the petroleum jelly, you’re gonna need it!

The attack on small businesses is part of the long term plot to force them to consolidate or sell out to big businesses. Why? It makes it easier to keep track of them so they can be regulated and taxed with less effort. In other words, it will hasten the day when with most business divided up to larger but fewer chunks a socialist government can control peoples’ lives easier and with fewer outliers to cause them trouble. The socialist utopia will then be realized. (Or so they think)

I am so worried that we will never be able to recover from all of this damage Biden has done. It will take a long time even if we take back the House and Senate and a Republican is elected in 2024.
Shame on the people who voted for this wrecking ball clown!!!!!

I believe small business owners are more in tune with the deranged financial policies of this administration than the titans on Wall Street. For those conservatives who are well-read and up on their history, it should come as no surprise that this administration, or any Democrat administration, destroys the supply side of our economy – without fail. They are hell-bent on destruction of livelihoods, businesses, and private ownership of income and land. One constant fear of mine is that it will take years (if at all) for the electorate (the governed) to wake up and realize Democrats have always been a destructive cancer within within our gates. The hour is late and does not look good.

What happened to Biden’s promise of no new taxes? And he’s obviously going after small businesses. How can you tell if Biden is lying? His lips are moving.

The Marxist Democratic Party is doing all it can to make the population destitute and desperate for a government handout. They’ve been doing this since the party’s inception, so this isn’t new.

From the day JFK died and possibly as far back as FDR (although secretly in the closet) the Democrat Party has hated America, Americans, Small Businesses and anything God-fearing.
Power is their only desire and they have done everything to get it and will do anything to keep it. Since the unveiling of The Man-Child and now Brandon’s Folly, the outlook for the hated is bleak indeed. Whether or not TJ said it, it is time for that certain Tree to be refreshed, but I see a lot of writing and hear a lot of words, yet still the Patriots are silent. The clock is running to save this Nation and the hands are near the top.

I run a small business. Biden and crew are killing the small businesses.
However, if you want to destroy a country a key element is to eliminate the middle class.
Small business is the middle class.
