Job Creators Network Responds to Q1 GDP Release

Alfredo Ortiz, CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement on today’s Q1 GDP growth of 1.6%:

“American GDP grew at a slow rate and below expectations in the first quarter of 2024. This weak economy reflects the view of American small business owners. According to JCN’s national poll of small business owners, two-thirds say current economic conditions could force them to close. Slow economic growth is a direct result of bad Democratic policies that have caused stubbornly high inflation, overregulation, and a credit crunch. Potential Democrat tax increases would grind even this slow growth to a halt. Voters who want a return to a robust economy should remember this on Election Day.”
