Washington, DC (January
12, 2016)
National Federation of
Independent Business (NFIB) President and CEO Dan Danner
issued the
following statement this evening in response to President Obama’s State of the
Union message:

“We’re disappointed that
the President mentioned small business, which represents half the economy and
half the jobs, only in passing and in the strangest context.  In the final
year of his presidency, and after countless policy debates in which he
dismissed or denied the concerns of small businesses, now he says that they
need a stronger voice. 

“Small businesses have
been loudly and clearly opposed to many of the very policies that he featured
in his speech this evening, including the health care law, his energy
regulations and mandatorily higher labor costs.  Small businesses don’t
need a stronger voice.  They need someone to listen.”
