Washington, D.C. (March 24, 2017) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) today issued the following statement on behalf of President and CEO Juanita Duggan in response to the House’s failure to pass the American Health Care Act (AHCA):

“The House’s failure today to pass the American Health Care Act is extremely disappointing. Small businesses have struggled for seven years under Obamacare’s taxes and mandates, and now that struggle will continue for the foreseeable future. Passing a bill with a massive tax reduction for small businesses should have been the easiest of votes for both parties.”
