Tax cut a good thing

To the editor:

I have been a small business owner since 1991, and I am glad that Congress and U.S. Rep. Bill Johnson finally passed a long-overdue tax bill. This tax reform will not only help individuals, but, hopefully, it will boost our economy locally and as a nation.

High taxes are a major issue facing small businesses. This new tax bill will help employers hire and train employees and enable the employer to invest in new equipment. America can benefit from people spending more money — it’s not that complicated.

Our area is changing rapidly. New jobs are on the way. I think our people and our businesses deserve a long-awaited boost.

President Trump promised lower taxes, higher earnings and more jobs. Now, with the help of Congress, he delivered. Thank you to those who voted for it, including Johnson and Sen. Rob Portman.
