Republicans Obstructing Legislation to Help Small Businesses

A new poll released yesterday shows small business owners continue to be concerned about the country’s economic recovery.

Democrats are fighting for American workers, their families and small businesses and we will continue to work to grow our economy and create jobs. What is clear is that Republicans are continuing to obstruct progress and seek to take us back to the failed economic policies of the Bush Administration.

Here are the facts about the Small Business Jobs and Credit Act passed by House Democrats:

Estimated Job Impact: 450,000-500,000 new American jobs

Passed the House: June 17, 2010

Opposed by House Republicans: 98% voted NO

A similar bill has been blocked by Senate Republicans for months.
