I grew up in poverty and know what it is like to sit around the kitchen table and worry about paying the bills. In order to help Iowa families and small businesses move forward, I have pushed for a number of tax cuts and incentives. That includes tax cuts to help small businesses hire and invest in the equipment that will help them grow, as well as providing tax credits to employers who hire veterans.
In these tough economic times, I worked to cut taxes for working families. I know that saving the average family $1,000 can mean the difference between putting food on the table, buying gas, and making mortgage payments or falling even further behind. I know that more must be done to help families and employers, and I will continue to fight for middle-class families and small businesses.
