NM's Pearce redefines "New Mexico Small Business"

NM-02 misrepresentative steve pearce posted this over the weekend. “Lunch with the family at Rosa’s Cafe, a New Mexico small business.”

I don’t think so.

Rosa’s Cafe is a chain of over 40 locations, mostly in Texas, and part of Bobby Cox Companies, a multi-chain conglomerate headquartered in Texas.

Small Business?

Sure the restaurants provide some local employment, mostly low-paying, & collect sales tax, but any corporate trickle-down (?) is not going to fall in New Mexico. The profits are siphoned off to an out-of-state corporation. If pearce can’t figure out what a New Mexico business is, he doesn't belong in congress, nor in Santa Fe.

I was in 7th grade and I can still picture the classroom, the view out the window, the location of the clock and the PA speaker. I can never hear “Hail to the Chief” without picturing JFK’s funeral on my folks’ B&W TV.

GOP "Postcard" tax return - what's missing:

Let's start with this - most of the "adjustments to income". Pretty significant stuff to a lot of people. Maybe a lower tax rate, higher standard deduction, but personal exemption and nearly all of these adjustments go away. Lots of people will end up with higher taxable income.
