- 1 million jobs could be lost: Studies show that tax hikes on businesses and other tax increases under consideration in Washington could lead to 1 million fewer jobs in just the first two years.
- New taxes could slow down economic investment: Tax hikes on businesses could slow America’s economic recovery – decreasing the country’s GDP by $117 billion by 2023. Higher taxes could also discourage approximately $80 billion worth of investments that are associated with expansion and new products, which provide jobs and economic opportunity.
- Stand up for American energy: On average, the energy industry already contributes $70 million per day to the federal government in taxes and other fees, more than most other industries. Instead of imposing higher taxes on businesses, the government should enact pro-business policies that would allow the energy industry to continue supporting millions of American jobs and create a tax structure that encourages energy investment.
- Support U.S. workers: Studies show that labor – union and non-union alike – could shoulder approximately 70% of the burden of increased taxes on businesses.
