After the pandemic ravaged small businesses across the country, vaccines and a reopening economy promised to help Main Street get back on its feet.

Small businesses are “looking at a slew of tax increases that would hit them from every angle”:

Small businesses suffer under Bidenflation: 

  • More than 60 percent of American job creators are worried Bidenflation will close down their business, a recent poll finds, with the vast majority noting that they’ve been forced to raise their prices in the last year.

  • Recent polling from the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council shows that only 9 percent of small businesses say President Biden’s policies make it easy to start and grow a business
  • A Goldman Sachs survey of 10,000 Small Businesses found 91 percent of small business owners say broader economic trends, such as inflation, supply chain issues, and workforce challenges, are having a negative impact on their business.
