Biden’s Bottom-Up and Middle-Out Agenda Ignores the Economic Role of Small Businesses

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement in response to Biden’s economic speech in Maryland today:

“President Biden’s support for a ‘bottom-up’ and ‘middle-out’ economy are mere euphemisms for his failed big government approach that wages war on the nation’s true economic engine: small businesses. Biden’s tax-spend-and-regulate policies have led to two years of declining real wages and living standards for ordinary Americans. While Biden claims otherwise, his policies are clearly anti-worker and anti-small business. To get the economy working again and real wages finally rising, policymakers must pursue pro-growth policies that bring small businesses back. JCN’s American Small Business Prosperity Plan offers Congress a playbook.”
