WASHINGTON, Aug. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce announces enthusiastic support for Hillary Clinton's comprehensive proposals to jump-start small business startups and strengthen small business growth and declares the chamber's promise to support these pro-small business reforms and innovations.
"The U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce has consistently sought out U.S. leadership that genuinely understands small business and the many levers and tools available through government policies, investments and practices to spur small business start-ups and growth," states Margot Dorfman, CEO of the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce. "After reviewing Hillary Clinton's set of comprehensive proposals to jump-start small business startups and business growth, we can clearly and enthusiastically confirm that Hillary Clinton is a true small business champion."
"The small business proposals recommended by Hillary Clinton are smart, focused and nuanced. Each proposal displays a real understanding of the issues and takes a uniquely strategic approach to fueling new business startups, small business growth and job creation," adds Dorfman. "Clinton's proposals will make it much easier for small businesses to start and thrive at every step including: cutting red tape and expenses to make it easier to start a business as well as pushing state and local governments to do the same, making it easier for small businesses to secure financing and find investors, ensuring that education and resources reach underserved communities, allowing entrepreneurs to defer student loan payments interest-free while launching start-ups, providing much needed tax relief for small business owners (including expensing new investments), making it cheaper and faster to manage business accounting and filing taxes and making it easier to offer health care and other benefits to employees."
Clinton's proposals address an issue that is of great concern to members of the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce – access to federal contracts. The U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce is the leading national champion for women suppliers to the federal government. Clinton's proposals will make it easier for small businesses to work with the federal government, compete for contracts and secure payment promptly.
Clinton's small business proposals also include a much needed focus on encouraging small business exports and making it easier for small businesses to fight back when they are stiffed by predatory, big business bad actors.
"It's about time small business had a champion in the White House," concludes Dorfman. "The U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce will work tirelessly to support and advance these proposals. Our American economy, job creation and the financial strength of our families will all benefit from the effective implementation of Hillary Clinton's small business startup and growth proposals."
