Weston Letter: Democrats Tax Focus Inhibits Job Growth

WESTON, Conn. — The Weston Daily Voice accepts signed, original letters to the editor. Letters may be emailed to weston@dailyvoice.com .

To the Editor,

For me, the upcoming federal and state elections are about fundamental issues. Government spending outpaces revenue, the growth of well-paying jobs is anemic and government influence expands while individual freedom recedes. Democrats help us feel comfortable. With more regulations and increased taxes, we’ll be fine. They’re well-intended, and they’re wrong.

We’re in a battle with the rest of the world for well-paying jobs. Those jobs are the key to our society’s viability. More regulations and higher taxes inhibit people from starting businesses in a highly competitive environment where most startups fail. We need people in government who understand that.

Dan Gilbert, Weston
