Job Creators Network reacts to Biden’s CEO Filled Meeting Attempting to Revive Build Back Better’s Social and Climate Spending

Washington, DC (January 26, 2022) – Today, President Biden is meeting with a group of CEOs to discuss social spending and climate actions from the newly dissected Build Back Broke bill.

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of Job Creators Network, issued the following statement in response:

“Biden and big businesses are working in cahoots to stick it to small businesses. It’s a serious problem when small businesses are responsible for two-thirds of all new job growth and Biden has no one there to speak on their behalf. Even the scaled-down versions of the spending and climate bills are a one-two gut punch for the same small businesses who are already contending with a labor shortage, ever-rising inflation and energy costs. Inflation is at a 40 year high, and the cost of gas is up nearly 50 percent from this time last year. Small Businesses need economic freedom, not government-induced economic harm.”
