The Job Creators Network (JCN) put up a new billboard in Times Square calling out the broken promises the Biden administration has made to small businesses. The ad comes on the heels of the passage of the boldly misnamed Inflation Reduction Act—which includes tax increases that will roll downhill to Mainstreet and an army of new IRS agents that will have small businesses in their crosshairs.
The billboard is headlined, “STOP LYING TO SMALL BUSINESSES!” and features an animation of President Biden’s nose growing longer—invoking the classic children’s tale, Pinocchio. The ad goes on to question, “NO NEW TAXES,” “NO IRS AUDITS,” “NO RECESSION,” AND “NO INFLATION?” as examples of the White House evading the truth. View the animated billboard here.
Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO, released the following statement:
“The Biden administration has obviously taken small business owners and the American people for a ride—playing fast and loose with the facts at every opportunity. Despite spin from the White House press room, the economy is in the dumps, wage increases are being engulfed by high inflation, and small businesses and the middle class will be subject to tax increases that roll downhill. Administration officials are likely spinning the truth in an attempt to reverse free falling approval ratings, but small businesses won’t be duped. Now with this billboard, Biden’s growing Pinocchio nose is on display for all Americans to see.”
