Washington, DC (August 25, 2016) – As Americans think about who they want to send to represent their interests in Washington, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) will discuss some of the top priorities of small business owners in a series of weekly Small Biz Voter Briefs and daily social media posts. Each Monday through Election Day, NFIB will send a memo laying out small business owners’ concerns with the federal government. Then throughout the week, the @NFIB Twitter account will share posts along these themes.

“Politicians across the political spectrum embrace small business,” said NFIB Vice President of Public Policy Amanda Austin. “It’s one thing to say you support small business. NFIB members want a President and legislators who make it easier for them to run and grow their business. We’re going to clearly communicate small business owners’ top concerns with the federal government. We hope that candidates will respond to these ideas and come to Washington with a clear plan to help small businesses revive our economy in 2017.”

Small business owners have major concerns with federal government policies in many areas including taxes, healthcare, labor, and rules and regulations. Over the coming weeks, NFIB will delve into these issues individually so that media and candidates for office can better understand the struggles small businesses face.
