Tax Extenders: “Not only has Congress failed to roll up their sleeves and dig into a serious discussion on tax reform, they haven’t even been able to expand some of the most popular and useful tax provisions that help America’s small-business owners.”

Small Business Vote: “We’re fed up by the new normal where elections matter more than progress, where lawmakers think it’s perfectly ok to punt on major issues facing our country, and where our votes have been marginalized to mere numbers on a blue and red map.”

The Deficit: “The U.S. has always been a leader in entrepreneurship, however, if we do not address our record-high national debt and annual budget deficits, our global competitiveness will be stymied.”
