Small Business Wants Opportunity, Not Handouts
Business Wants Opportunity, Not Handouts
D.C., June 17, 2014 — National
Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Manager
of Regulatory Policy Dan Bosch made the following statement in response to today’s
announcement by the Administration of ‘pen and phone actions’ to spur
“This is yet another example of the Administration jumping
to the head of the line, trying to take credit for innovation in the private
sector where they have provided little help, and many headaches,” said Bosch.
“While a few of these initiatives might provide some marginal benefit, the
Administration’s actions today pale in comparison to the crushing regulatory
burden that they have placed on businesses in recent years.
“It’s especially frustrating that the Administration is
promoting this initiative only weeks after announcing a new
EPA rule that will significantly raise the cost of energy for U.S.
manufacturers, and days after threatening to veto legislation in the House of
Representatives that would lower
the cost to small manufacturers to reinvest in their businesses.”
