Congress Must Take Action For The Sake Of Small Businesses

Friday, February 03, 2012

  • Fix the tax disparities that make small businesses pay more than their corporate counterparts for health insurance
  • Increase small-business lending that will help startups create new jobs and help existing businesses expand
  • Help individual states launch self-employment training programs for residents


America’s small-business owners expect our nation’s policymakers to find solutions and take actions that will help put people back to work. When small businesses begin to thrive again, so will the U.S. economy.
