Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today after President Obama sent Congress his Startup America Legislative Agenda:
“President Obama has put forward an agenda that will help American small businesses compete, grow, and hire by cutting taxes, increasing access to capital, and tearing down the barriers to their success. House Democrats have met with thousands of small businesses and heard clearly that with the help of smart policies to support their success, they are ready to meet America’s top priority which is to create jobs.
“House Democrats want to reignite the American Dream, rebuilding the pillars of America that have historically made our economy strong: small businesses, entrepreneurs, and a thriving middle class. House Democrats are ready to get to work on sending the President legislation that will boost small business and job creation.”
