Letters 5 – 1 – 2012

Kudos to Robert Rich 

This is the hypocrisy of the Vermont progressive liberal legislative culture.

They enact laws that ‘kill’ the small business they purport to embrace all the time. They are doing it right now by forcing business with 50 or less employees into the health care exchange, and what are the tax consequences of this? Montpelier’s not telling.

We must vote out legislators who don’t work in the real world or in the field, and are blind to real life financial impact of their actions which have a profound effect on small business, consumers and the cost-of-living in Vermont.

Very small business must rely and spend dis-proportionate percentages of income on tax accountants and lawyers to keep up with the constant changes, especially in a small, rural state with a small economy.

Kudos to Mr. Rich. If he can find out the tax implications (taxes levied, deductions lost) of this new health care law (H.559), Vermonters would love to know, especially small business.
