While some may be relieved at today’s jobs numbers, the reality is that our economy is struggling to recover. And a big reason for that is the federal government. The impediments that the government imposes are impossible to deal with. Every day you see rules and regulations from a group of Washington bureaucrats who know nothing about running a business. And I mean every day. It’s become stifling.

At the Job Creators Alliance, we?re fighting for the free enterprise system that made this nation great. We’re calling on small business owners and entrepreneurs – the real job creators – to stand up and point out how misguided government policies are stifling their ability to expand, invest and hire.
