The National Federation of Independent Business/California released the following statement today about the election of Congressman Kevin McCarthy as Majority Leader.
“Majority Leader-elect McCarthy is the epitome of a California success story. He won the lottery and used the winnings to purchase a small business and then used that money to put himself through school,” said John Kabateck, NFIB/CA Executive Director. “Because of that experience, he knows and understands the challenges and issues facing small business owners because he's walked the talk as a job creator himself.”
“We are proud to
have him in this important leadership role because he understands the problems California
faces with higher taxes, regulations and lawsuits,” continued Kabateck. “We look
forward to working with him to ensure those in Congress and Washington DC
understand how to help small businesses grow and create jobs.”
