Atlanta—The Job Creators Network (JCN) applauds the Trump Administration’s dedication to small businesses and commitment to tax cuts. In a recent JCN national poll, almost 50 percent of small business owners said that addressing high tax rates would be their highest policy priority. President Trump’s press conference yesterday shows his enthusiasm towards helping small business owners and entrepreneurs and preserving the American Dream. Polling also revealed that a majority of small businesses would use a tax cut to either raise wages, open a new location, buy new equipment, or hire new people.
To correspond with Trump’s small business tax reform initiative, Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House, and Brad Anderson, former CEO of Best Buy and JCN member, had an op-ed in USA Today this morning highlighting the importance of achieving tax reform by Thanksgiving.

Below is a statement from Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO:
We are excited by the Trump Administration’s dedication to the small business owner and the American Dream. If we give tax relief to these job creators we can grow the economy and provide opportunity for millions. These small business entrepreneurs can’t wait any longer. They need tax relief now
