Hausman says if elected, he will push for a tax break to allow businesses that add employees to the payroll to deduct those wages twice from taxable income.
Hausman says while he opposes some of President Obama’s programs, this plan would work with the president’s proposals to help small business.
“I would love to see that work out. I would love to see investment tax credits, I would love to see capital gains relief for small businesses,” says Hausman. “To any extent that he’d be willing to work on that, I’d be glad to work with him, given the opportunity.”
Hausman is one of five Republicans seeking the Third District seat currently held by Democrat John Yarmuth.
