Running a small business should not be punitive as the default state of things. The Republicans can easily snap these guys up because it sucks and all they have to do is blame Democrat taxes, red tape, and oppressive imposed admin overhead. Which is arguably a valid point in some relentless cities and states.
Starting a business doesn't automatically make you a bottomless well of time and money to do and pay stuff. The idea persists into social media as well, people thinking all small biz guys get to take off for half the year jet skiing or whatever. Please, with these recessions and the pandemic, people have been dipping into their personal accounts and taking out loans just to stay operational.
