Cedar Lake – Following President Biden’s unveiling of his massive $7.3 Trillion Budget, including $5.5 Trillion in tax hikes, Randy Niemeyer, Lake County Councilman and Republican Congressional candidate for Indiana’s First District issued the following statement:

“As a small business owner, I’m deeply troubled by President Biden’s proposed budget and tax hikes. With a $7.3 trillion budget and $5.5 trillion in tax increases, the government is reaching deeper into our pockets without considering the consequences for hardworking Americans and entrepreneurs like myself. Biden has learned nothing from the past three years, continuing to burden everyday Americans with runaway spending, causing us to pay higher prices for goods, while taxing you more.

“These policies will directly lead to higher inflation, eroding the buying power of your hard-earned dollars, and further straining the budgets of American families and businesses. 

“These policies have been tried over and over again in this country and have never worked. Working and middle-class taxpayers have always paid the freight on tax and spend policies. 

“Tax hikes threaten to burden businesses already struggling to recover from the challenges of the past few years. Instead of fueling economic growth, they’ll crush the entrepreneurial spirit that drives our nation forward.

“Rather than penalizing success, we should foster an environment that encourages innovation and job creation. I will advocate for responsible fiscal policies in Congress that prioritize the needs of small businesses, and everyday Americans to ensure our economy can thrive for generations to come,” stated Niemeyer.
