Hassan needs to take more money from my business for gas tax

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

As a former small-business owner, the gas tax affects me in a very negative way.

My business was greatly affected by gas prices. I ran a moving company, and anytime gas prices went up our profit margin went down.

The increase in the gas tax to 22.2 cents per gallon is completely unreasonable. The gas tax increase would make it harder any small business to be successful. I do not know what the governor thinks she is doing, but she is not helping any small-business owners.

Anyone who owns a business knows that the first thing you need to get under control is your budget. However, that is something that Maggie Hassan, as governor, has not done. As a result she needs to increase revenue, which means taking more money from my business with her gas tax.

Businesses cannot just create revenue by picking it from someone else's pocket, so why is it fair that she can?
