The “Vote for Main Street” campaign, will boost candidates who have proven their commitment to American small businesses
This week, the National Federation of Independent Businesses launches its “Vote for Main Street” campaign, which will boost candidates who have proven their commitment to the best interests of American’s small businesses. NFIB’s priorities include easing the federal regulatory burden attributable to unilateral EPA policymaking and reforming the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare,” to the point where it will no longer have “a negative economic impact on small businesses.”
NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner said his membership is “sick of hearing candidates say they are in favor of small business, but then do nothing to support them.” In an effort to ascertain whether or not their viewpoints are in line with its goals, NFIB will be asking candidates:
Do you support requiring Congress to pass a balanced federal budget every year?
Do you support repealing the Affordable Care Act’s tax on health insurers?
Do you support defining 40 hours as the definition of full-time work, instead of the ACA’s 30 hours?
Do you support requiring the federal government to certify that the ACA is not having a negative economic impact on small businesses?
Do you support reasonable limits on the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to regulate utility plant emissions?
