Opinion: Tax Hurts Small Businesses

Repost of a letter to the editor that appeared in Colorado’s The Gazette

I want Sen. Cory Gardner to help small- business owners like me by delaying the Health Insurance Tax again for 2020. Cost-increasing expenses like the tax prevent me from providing my employees with health coverage. If the tax is not suspended again, more small businesses will be unable to provide their employees with health care in the future.

I have employees who are looking for health care, and I might lose them because I can’t provide it. That will probably lead to more costs for me in training and hiring new workers.

Before this session ends, Congress must work together to endure this tax is delayed again. After the delay, I would like to see the Health Insurance Tax permanently repealed.
