State Director Bob Hallstrom says small business owes a debt of gratitude to Cornhusker representatives for their vote for Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
Small-business optimism is at historic highs, according to NFIB’s Optimism Index, regarded here at home and internationally as the bellwether measurement of Main Street’s economic vitality.
It isn’t by accident, argues NFIB/Nebraska State Director Bob Hallstrom in a guest editorial for the Lincoln Journal-Star, which ran January 17.
“I want to give a whole lot of credit for the continued optimism found on the Main Streets of Nebraska to our congressional delegation for its heroic effort in passing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law.
“Small businesses owe a debt of gratitude to Sens. Deb Fischer and Ben Sasse and Reps. Don Bacon, Jeff Fortenberry, and Adrian Smith for their steadfastness in doing the right thing for the people who give the vast majority of Americans their first rung up the ladder of the working lives, know all their employees and their families by name and provide someone a second chance to regain the self-respect only work can deliver.”
