WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Roger Williams (TX-25) joined his House Small Business Committee Republican colleagues in a letter to President Biden and Speaker Pelosi opposing proposed tax increases on small businesses. You can read the full letter here.

“As a small business owner of over 50 years, I understand firsthand the negative impacts increased taxes have on business owners,” said Congressman Williams. “Main Street America is the backbone to our economy and should not be fronting the bill for Biden and Pelosi’s liberal government programs, such as Green New Deal priorities and government controlled healthcare. As business owners across the country continue to adapt and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Democrats’ proposed tax increases would slow our economic recovery and hurt their ability to quickly recover, leading to less jobs and revenue. The Democrats plan to push forward with reckless spending plans, adding trillions of dollars to our debt, should concern every tax-paying American and I will continue to oppose any effort to raise taxes on hardworking business owners.”
