The American Small Business Chamber™ of Commerce Calls for Passage of The American Jobs Act of 2011
America's small businesses can't wait. We need investments in business growth and consumer demand now to drive Main Street business growth and job creation.
Washington, DC, October 11, 2011 -- The American Small Business Chamber of Commerce™ (americansbcc.org) calls for the immediate passage of The American Jobs Act of 2011 and continued actions to build a business climate in which America's small businesses can thrive and fuel job creation.
"Main Street America is desperately in need of business leaders who care about our families and our communities, and who will grow businesses in our neighborhoods restoring economic vibrancy and community vitality," says Terry Williams, CEO of The American Small Business Chamber of Commerce. "Passage of The American Jobs Act of 2011 will support small business growth and job creation and help our country progress towards greater economic security and prosperity."
"Small businesses can't wait; we're losing strength and opportunities for growth every single day. These opportunity losses produce failed hiring opportunities, declining consumer demand, and a growing uncertainty about our future," adds Williams. "We need leaders in Congress who support Main Street America -- leaders who care about our future. The American Small Business Chamber of Commerce calls upon Congress to act now to support America's Main Street Businesses through the immediate passage of The American Jobs Act of 2011."
"The American Small Business Chamber of Commerce supports the combination of short-run stimulus that will spur business growth and job creation with measures that will reduce the deficit over the long term," says Terry Williams. "This legislation is a win-win for the American economy. There can be no excuses to delay."
