Washington, D.C. — The Job Creators Network (JCN) has collected nearly 173,000 petitions, representing more than 500,000 letters sent to Members of Congress, in support of tax cuts for small businesses and hardworking Americans. The petition is part of JCN’s multi-million dollar campaign to pass significant small business tax relief legislation by the end of the year.

  • Last week, JCN hosted an event with the Washington Examiner to present the petitions, which filled over 85 boxes, to Speaker Paul Ryan. Speaker Ryan made the following comments:

“I want to thank the Job Creators Network. I want to thank the small business men and women of America for creating all these jobs and giving families hope… I want the tax system to be fair, and we want it easy for small businesses to grow, create jobs and survive…I want to thank you [Job Creators Network] for being involved and being part of the solution and for bringing the voice of small businesses around America to the Capitol.”
