Democrats Play Partisan Politics with Small Business Budget Reconciliation
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last night, House Committee on Small Business Ranking Member Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO) released the following statement on the Democrats' political overhaul of the small business budget reconciliation.
"Now more than ever, small businesses, entrepreneurs, and startups across the country need responsible, targeted relief to open their doors and contribute to our economy once again," said Luetkemeyer. "It is clear that Democrats are focusing on partisan politics while wasting millions of taxpayer dollars by rewarding their political allies with funds intended for our hardest hit small businesses. Democrats on this committee must commit to working across the aisle to provide our nation’s hardworking men and women with the freedom and relief they deserve."
Below is a list of numerous proposals that Small Business Committee Republicans offered but Democrats refused to consider.
