The Conservative Cafe is right on Main Street in downtown Crown Point just about four blocks north of the "square" on the North East corner of Main and North. 201 N Main to be precise. The owners have been hosting Tea Party Patriot meetings once per month, led by Mark Leyva, and hosting a variety of Republican candidates for State and National office.
Speaking of Brian, he has a lot to say about the delaying of the "tax increase" voted on in the Statehouse, that being HB1379 pertaining to unemployment taxes on Indiana businesses. To quote Bosma per his website:
- Over 2 million Hoosier works are employed by a business that will be subjected to one of the largest tax increases on Hoosier employers in history.
- Nearly $300 million in new taxes will be placed on about 80,000 Hoosier businesses ranging anywhere from $9 to $748 per employee.
- Over 72,000 of those employers are small businesses (1-49 employees)."
Word from State Senator Marlin Stutzman's camp is that about a dozen years ago, the Unemployment Insurance Fund in Indiana was sitting on multiple millions of dollars which were not being used, and it was continuing to collect fees in order to comply with Federal Mandates. The decision was made before 2000 to cut the fees/premiums being collected from Indiana businesses, due to the extra money in the fund. When the federal government mandates unemployment insurance to the states without funding, it forces state legislators to figure out a way to comply.
Marlin Stutzman's official page has a complete list of his postions on key issues in the race. Those interested in the Senate Race on the Republican side have some interesting decisions to make since there is more than one very qualified candidate for the job.
Nevertheless, the Statehouse has delayed implementation for one more year (they are trying, at least) to give larger businesses a chance to make contingency plans for the change. That is the word from Indianapolis. If you come on Tuesday you can ask Representative Bosma what he thinks of the situtation specifically.
The bottom line? This legislation is supposed to REWARD companies who keep their workers rather than forcing them to help bail out the bigger corporations that do layoffs and firings as part of their business plan.
Come out to the Cafe on Tuesday and get the answers to this and other questions directly from the House Republican Leader, Brian Bosma! This is a good chance to interact with a very prominent member of the House and also for District 19 voters to meet and greet Dan Klein.
