In a town hall meeting last week in Pittsburg, Senator Kelly Ayotte was corrected by a Republican constituent when she declared she wouldn’t end tax breaks for the wealthiest 2% because it will impact “small businesses.

“There are a lot of people in here who in small business but I don’t think any of us in small businesses have a bottom line where we’re making over $250,000. It really won’t negatively affect these small businesses.”

Woodard, a tax accountant knew what he was talking about: according to several studies, the policy change would end the Bush-era tax cuts for the richest 2% wouldn’t affect 97% of small businesses.

That’s why small business owners across the country are asking for a balanced deal that will strengthen the middle class. Join them and call your member of Congress today.
