Presidential Candidate Answers Questions in Nationwide
TeleForum

Washington,
DC (November 17, 2015)
– This afternoon, presidential candidate Gov. Jeb Bush
answered questions from business leaders in a nationwide TeleForum. A coalition
of business groups including the National Federation of Independent Business
organized the call for their members. Bush discussed a wide variety of topics
including taxes, regulations, the national debt and health care reform.

“Small
businesses have generated more than half of the new jobs in this country over
the past few decades. If we want the economy to grow, the next President has to
address the concerns of Main Street,” said NFIB
CEO Dan Danner
. “We want to thank Governor Bush for answering critical
questions about ways we can help businesses grow and thrive. We hope that more
candidates will also step up and listen to Americans who are working hard to
create jobs.”

Bush
is the second leading presidential contender to accept the invitation to speak
with members of the business coalition composed of Associated General
Contractors, Associated Builders and Contractors, BIPAC, National Association
of Manufacturers, NFIB and the National Retail Federation. Top polling
candidates from both parties have been invited to participate in the
TeleForums.

Members asked questions about the candidate’s plan for tax
reform, controlling regulations—specifically rules from the Environmental
Protection Agency—controlling the national debt and how he would work with
Congress to give more spending control to states.
