Smith Holds Job Creators Roundtable
by Lamar Smith on February 23, 2011 at 5:24 PM
Today I met with small business owners from the 21st district to discuss how government impacts their ability to create jobs. Small businesses are the engine of job creation in this country, creating 65 percent of jobs in this country. Yet, rather than bend to small business’ needs, Washington too often rigidly demands that small business bend to Washington.
Instead, we need to focus on creating a stable economic environment that encourages the private sector to invest and grow. I will continue to support our job creators, the small business community, and promote a pro-growth economic agenda.
