Pence overlooked small businesses

When Vice President Mike Pence visited Cedar Rapids earlier this month, he touted the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and how much it is helping small business owners. But rather than talking to us, he instead visited Rockwell Collins, which has seen millions in tax cuts with the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

In reality, small businesses and the economy are taking a hit because the new law’s tax breaks are skewed toward large corporations and a handful of wealthy pass-through entities, not true small businesses.

They are the real winners of the new tax law, not businesses like mine.
