Here's a sample of some of the things we've been working on.

Impeachment Proceedings Dampen Congressional Activity

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

As House Democrats open impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump, the sentiment on Capitol Hill has turned sour. While the oversight powers rest with Congress, there is a growing fear that the impeachment activities will delay or outright stall any legislative activity through the end of 2019 and 2020. This includes funding the federal government, addressing prescription drug pricing, and passing the United States Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

While the House debates opening formal impeachment proceedings, the NASE continues to navigate the complex legislative environment pushing for expanded opportunities for the self-employed to save for retirement, championing more opportunities for the self-employed to secure, affordable health insurance and addressing the continued disparities in the tax code.

Overall, while the national focus is pulled to Congress’s oversight of the President and his Administration, we believe that it is crucial for the NASE and its members to double its efforts in elevating the story and opportunities for the 37 million self-employed individuals who continue to push our country forward. As the 2020 election inches closer, we will be rolling out new tools for you to evaluate those individuals running for President, Senate and House, and determine which will best represent your issues and provide economic opportunity and security for the self-employed.

As we approach the end of 2019, we remain focused on our goals and ever more determined to give voice to the self-employed.
