Washington, DC—The Job Creators Network, a leading voice for small businesses in America, applauds the tax framework announced today by the Big Six and urges fast passage to bring relief to hardworking Americans.
Alfredo Ortiz, the President and CEO of the Job Creators Network, released the following statement:
I’m encouraged to see that the administration is moving forward with tax cuts for small business. While many details still need to be filled in, this is a crucial and positive step in the right direction. Make no mistake: the recent progress in the campaign for tax relief should bring optimism to the 29 million small business owners and the roughly 56 million people that depend on them for their livelihoods. These entrepreneurs—who are responsible for two-thirds of all new job creation in this country—are struggling under the stifling current tax rates. It’s limiting their ability to expand, raise wages, and hire more workers. We encourage Congress to make these cuts retroactive to January 1, 2017 in order to fully unleash the economic potential of Main Street and increase financial prosperity for all Americans. The time for talk is over. The time for action is now.
