Small Businesses: A Smart Investment
Small businesses are America’s greatest source for new jobs.
The economic crisis has frozen access to credit for small businesses across the nation, preventing them from securing the loans they need to grow and create jobs. The legislation the House passed today (The Small Business Financing and Investment Act, H.R. 3854) will open up the lines of credit, and grant $44 billion in new lending and investments so small businesses can get the loans they need to create and save 1.3 million jobs.
Putting Americans back to work is our number one priority. Small businesses create 60-80% of new jobs every year. The math is simple. We need small businesses to grow in order to put Americans back to work. The Small Business Financing and Investment Act is a smart bill that will create jobs for out of work Americans and get our economy back on track.
