Government cannot create jobs, but it can create an environment that nurtures job creation. Lowering corporate and personal income taxes, the gift tax, property and car taxes are all a part of the answer. High taxes discourages all types of economic growth including business expansion and entrepreneurial initiative. We must make it easy to start a business in Connecticut and therefore create jobs. Too many regulations hinder this too.
Get government out of the way of your employer, of your business and it will be amazing what we can do. Does anyone really believe government can run your business better and more efficiently than you? Why so many taxes? Why is government so big?
I believe we do a much better job ourselves.
