Small businesses play a vital role in the health of our nation’s economy, and their importance cannot be overstated. As a former small business owner, I signed the front of a paycheck for 30 years. I know firsthand the struggles and challenges small businesses and entrepreneurs face in today’s economic climate. My experience guides my work in Congress. As Chairman of the Congressional Small Business Caucus, I am working to get government out of the way, so small businesses can do what they do best: create jobs and generate economic growth. Federal regulations have concentrated power in Washington, crippled small businesses, stunted job creation, and shuttered store fronts along Main Streets across America. I am working to advance policies that roll back unnecessary federal regulations, support small businesses, and empower entrepreneurs.
