STUTZMAN asked and was given permission to address the House for
1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
Mr. STUTZMAN. Mr. Speaker, workers and small businesses all across
the country have suffered greatly in Obama's economy. Over 90 million
people are not participating in our workforce, and wages have remained
stagnant, creating a squeeze on the middle class.
Expanding the size of government by raising taxes and increasing regulations will not help America recover; instead, working Americans are counting on us to make it easier and not harder to find opportunities so that they can earn a steady paycheck and provide for their families.
I ask my colleagues to support America's Small Business Tax Relief Act, legislation that the House will vote on tomorrow, sponsored by Congressman Tiberi. I know, from traveling my district in Indiana, that small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and this bill will allow job creators to deduct expenses and investments for new equipment the year that they are purchased, making it easier for businesses to grow.
This legislation could help produce tens of thousands of jobs and add billions of dollars in economic output.
Tomorrow, let's stand for common sense and pass a bill that will help kick-start our economy and make it easier for small businesses and workers to succeed.
