The Hill: 3 steps Congress can take to make 'Small Business Saturday' every day

– As President-elect Trump outlines an agenda for his first 100 days in office, Katie Vlietstra, Vice President of Public Affairs and Government Relations for the National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE), the nation's leading resource for the self-employed and micro-businesses, encourages the administration to focus on key small business issues in a new op-ed published in The Hill for Small Business Saturday.

In "3 steps Congress can take to make 'Small Business Saturday' every day", Vlietstra encourages the President-elect and Congress to address key priorities in health care, regulatory evaluation and tax reform – all themes that collectively work to strengthen our economy.

"The economic issues of greatest importance for the American public are also those we hear consistently raised by America’s small business community.

"It’s no secret that we must improve our nation’s health care system so everyone can receive quality health care coverage at an affordable price. Our regulatory system continues to be overly complicated and negatively impacts local and national economies without any oversight. And our country’s tax system is lopsided and penalizes the little guy just trying to get ahead, while granting large corporations a multitude of loopholes to avoid or greatly reduce their tax liability.

"Together, health care, regulatory evaluation, and tax reform are common themes of both the American public and small business community that, if addressed, can collectively go a long way towards strengthening our overall economy."
