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.
