DeFranco Delivers Idea #1: Tax breaks for Small Businesses

Here’s an idea. What if a campaign gave voters actual solutions to our current challenges? What if a campaign not only had total transparency but also gave voters the details of those solutions? What if a campaign completely freed itself from Wall Street, K Street PACs and big money, and answered only to voters and directly to voters? 

Well, you don’t have to wonder “What if?” We are that campaign, Marisa DeFranco is our candidate, we are here and we are fighting for a real democracy that cannot be bought and sold or auctioned off to the highest bidder. 

Big money campaigns send lots of emails that are long on scare tactics and empty rhetoric, but short on ideas and solutions. We do things differently–we insist on quality and substance. We are happy to have you as a partner in this journey to a healthy, vibrant and thriving democracy. 

Marisa is asking for just 20 minutes of your time over the next 20 days. Over the next 20 days, we will email you one idea per day on how we can transform the current do-nothing Congress into a democracy that works for hardworking people. Each one will only take you one minute to read. That’s 20 Days, 20 Emails, 20 Minutes.   

That’s just 20 steps to a Total Democracy Makeover

Marisa’s opponents are in the kowtowing business–kowtowing to party establishment, big money, PACs, and K Street. Marisa is in the solutions business. The solutions business for Main Street’s small businesses–your business.

Our small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy, but Congress constantly undermines us at every turn. If Congress would stop crushing our innovation and creativity and entrepreneurial spirit, then together we can build a strong and thriving Main Street that will restart the engine of our economy and create jobs.

If you think receiving 20 emails in 20 days is too much, tune out and let the insiders continue to rule your life and your business without your input. But if you are willing to take just one minute per day, Marisa will show you that you do not have to settle for empty rhetoric and the status quo.


Marisa’s first idea is a solution that will have a tremendously positive impact on jobs and our economy by unlocking the potential of small business and Main Street.

We have an unfair and illogical tax code. Here is the massive problem with the tax code: a small business making $100,000 is paying essentially the same tax rate as a business making $10 million, and a business of $335,000 is in the exact same tax bracket as a $10 million business. This is a HUGE problem. A business at the lower level has very different needs and far fewer resources than one that generates 100 times more revenue.

Marisa said: “Any person in the real world would see that this set up is unfair, illogical and bad for small business. Why hasn’t my opponent done something about it? 

My solution is to lower taxes on small business to fuel job growth and to grow Main Street.”

DeFranco Delivers  

  1. Lower the business tax rate from an actual current rate of 34% to 26% for small businesses earning between $335,000 and $1 million.

  2. Lower the rate from current actual rate of 34% to 29% for small businesses earning between $1 million and $5 million.

  3. Lower the rate from the current actual rate of 34% to 32% for small businesses earning between $5 million and $10 million.

Let us join together to create a TRUE Democracy!
