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.

With lawmakers finalizing their tax reform legislation, Small Business Majority Founder & CEO John Arensmeyer as well as small business owners nationwide are available to discuss why the proposals now being considered will not help small businesses

 

The respective tax bills passed by the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate do virtually nothing to assist America’s small businesses,” Arensmeyer said. “Both measures give the overwhelming majority of benefits to large corporations, hedge fund managers and wealthy lawyers, while exploding the deficit and doing nothing to close loopholes that only help the largest firms.
