What Democrats Were Doing To Support Job Creation Last Year:
A year ago today, President Obama signed the Small Business Jobs Act into law, expanding much needed lending to millions of small businesses and offering tax incentives to help small businesses grow, hire, and fuel our economy, without adding a dime to the deficit.
What Republicans Are Doing To Support Job Creation This Year:
Still nothing. After nine months in the majority, Republicans still don’t have a comprehensive jobs plan and have taken little action on jobs.
Meanwhile, the Small Business Lending Fund created by the Small Business Jobs Act has provided 191 community banks across the country funding to increase lending to small businesses so they can expand, create jobs and ensure more families can make it in America. And Democrats remain focused on the Make It in America plan. We hope Republicans will abandon their partisan agenda, and work with us on our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and ensure more families can succeed.
