Statement from Small Business Majority Founder & CEO John Arensmeyer on why the federal government shutdown will impact small business owners’ bottom lines

 

Congress dealt a serious economic blow to small businesses when it failed to reach an agreement to avert a federal government shutdown, primarily because lawmakers inexcusably failed to do their jobs and come up with a long-term plan to keep the government running or resolve issues that have strong bipartisan support. Every time the government closes up shop it diminishes consumer confidence and creates a huge amount of uncertainty, which can wreak havoc on small business owners’ bottom lines.

Statement from Small Business Majority Founder & CEO John Arensmeyer on why the U.S. House of Representatives’ vote in favor of a tax reform bill will not help most small businesses

 

We’re disappointed that the U.S. House of Representatives today voted to pass legislation that blows a $1.5 trillion hole in the deficit while leaving small businesses behind. If lawmakers are going to add such a hefty amount to the deficit anyway, they should at least use a substantial portion of that money to help the small firms that employ nearly half of all private-sector workers.
