Washington, D.C., September 14, 2010 – As the U.S. Senate advances the Small Business Jobs Act, Kristie Arslan, Executive Director of the Legislative Offices of the National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE), released the following statement:

“The time for political posturing is over. America’s smallest businesses – the self-employed – need assistance now to weather this economic storm. Representing over 77% of all businesses, the self-employed have been waiting time and time again for Congress to pay attention to the issues that are affecting their businesses;  businesses that contribute to their local communities as well as our national economy. It is imperative the Senate act now to pass the Small Business Jobs Act which would offer the self-employed some much needed bottom-line tax savings and access to much-needed capital.”
