Speaker Ryan Joins Job Creators Network at Tax Cut Rally Event

JCN presents Ryan with Defender of Small Business Award for his historic role in passing the most important pro-growth legislation in a generation

Washington, DC (August 24, 2018) – The Job Creators Network national Tax Cuts Work tour rolled into Clinton, Wisconsin today to present House Speaker Paul Ryan with its Defender of Small Business Award for his leadership on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the largest tax cut in history and the most important pro-growth initiative since the Reagan era.

“We have talked about reforming the tax code for a generation, and now that we got it done, American workers and small businesses are reaping the benefits, and we’re seeing our economy respond positively too,” said Ryan. “As this law continues to take hold, families will see more savings, increased opportunities, and a greater chance to reach their full potential, leaving them better off because of the policy agenda we’ve passed.”

Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO, thanked Ryan for leading Congress to pass the tax cuts despite sharp opposition.

“This is the most important tax law in three decades and it has ignited the US economy,” said Ortiz. “It’s also the culmination of decades of leadership on the part of the Speaker. The small business community is extremely grateful, and the Speaker should be very proud of the results.”

The event was part of JCN’s Tax Cuts Work campaign, featuring a nationwide bus tour to create grassroots support for the tax cuts. For more information about Job Creators Network, please visit To learn more about the bus tour, visit
