Kerry to help business

John Kerry says “the measure of a strong economy is a growing middle-class in which every American has a chance to work and an opportunity to succeed.” The income gap has steadily widened so that under Bush the wealthiest 20 percent share of income has jumped to 50 percent, the largest ever.

In all polls, John Kerry is trusted more on the economy because of his uniting the “two Americas divided between the rich and everyone else.” Kerry will expand prosperity for the middle class, that group most ravaged by the Bush taxcut in favor of the top 1 percent. He wants to reward hard-working middle-class workers and small businesses with tax cuts and stop tax breaks for companies who send jobs overseas. His goal is to expand the reach of opportunity not the size of government.

Small businesses are the backbone of America’s economy. We have many small local businesses for which a tax cut will mean the difference between bankruptcy and solvency, creating more local jobs. Ninety-eight percent of all Americans and 99 percent of American businesses will get a tax cut under the Kerry’s plan. Small business owners and members of the middle-class will prosper under John Kerry’s presidency.
