WASHINGTON, D.C., Nov. 4, 2014 — Dan Danner, President and CEO of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the country’s leading advocate for small business owners, this evening issued the following statement in response to the election outcome:
“Small business owners believe overwhelmingly that Washington is principally responsible for the country’s economic problems and for that reason a change of leadership in the Senate was crucial. We are highly encouraged by the outcome and we look forward to working with the new Congress and the President to advance an economic agenda that promotes private sector growth.
“Small business is half the economy. It accounts for half the Gross National Product and it provides half the jobs. More than anything else small business needs freedom to grow. That means lower taxes, fewer rules and a federal bureaucracy that is restrained from imposing itself unduly on Americans whose ambition, imagination and grit will otherwise make us all more prosperous.”
