Statement

Date:
Location: Hampton Roads, VA

"So successful small businesses will see their taxes go up dramatically and that will kill jobs. That will be another kick in the gut to the middle class in America. We just saw a terrible jobs report just last week, and now to add a higher tax on job creators and on small business is about the worst thing I can imagine to do if you want to create jobs." -- Mitt Romney

MITT ROMNEY: "What the President is proposing is therefore a massive tax increase on job creators and on small business. Small businesses are overwhelmingly being taxed not at a corporate rate, but at the individual tax rate. So successful small businesses will see their taxes go up dramatically and that will kill jobs. That will be another kick in the gut to the middle class in America. We just saw a terrible jobs report just last week, and now to add a higher tax on job creators and on small business is about the worst thing I can imagine to do if you want to create jobs."
