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

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?
