Job Creators Network President Testifies at U.S. House Committee on Ways and Means Hearing

The hearing is titled, “Overcoming Racism to Advance Economic Opportunity”

Washington, DC (Wednesday, April 6, 2022)— Today, Job Creators Network President and CEO Alfredo Ortiz is giving testimony at a Ways and Means Committee hearing to advocate for free-market policies on behalf of minority entrepreneurs and small business owners. The hearing starts at 10am ET, and is titled, “Overcoming Racism to Advance Economic Opportunity.” Alfredo says that the biggest threat facing minority entrepreneurs is runaway inflation, and the biggest economic hurdle is bad government policies.

The hearing can be watched live, here.

“This burdensome inflation is a result of the government doing too much, not too little,” Mr. Ortiz will tell the committee, according to prepared remarks. “If the government wants to help the economic prospects of minorities, it should do less, not more. It should make small business tax cuts permanent and let the free-market unleash the creative talent of minorities. It should recognize the harmful unintended consequences of its well-intended policies. And it should fight for small businesses as hard as they fight for their big business patrons and lobbyists.”

Alfredo Ortiz is available for comment following the hearing. If you would like additional comments from Mr. Ortiz, please contact TJ Winer ([email protected]) or Josh Devin ([email protected]).
