Job Creators Network, one of the nation’s largest pro-jobs grassroots organizations, is applauding President Donald Trump’s speech in North Dakota Wednesday in which he pushed for Congress to pass a bipartisan tax reform bill.
“The President is siding with all American small business owners by aggressively pursuing tax cuts for entrepreneurs and hardworking taxpayers,” said Alfredo Ortiz, Job Creators Network President and CEO Alfredo Ortiz. “We agree with the president – we want to create more jobs in America for Americans – and the best way to do that is to give badly needed tax relief to our small business owners who are responsible for nearly two-thirds of new job growth in this country.”
President Trump addressed a large crowd in Bismarck, North Dakota and outlined his administration’s vision for what he called “the American plan.”
“So we’re here today to talk about our plan to create a new age of American prosperity by reducing the crushing tax burden on our companies and on our workers,” Trump told the audience. “The taxes are crazy — the highest-taxed nation in the world. We’re going to turn that around very quickly.”
“By working together, we’re going to restore America’s competitive edge by passing tax cuts and reform that makes America the best place in the world to hire, invest, and to grow,” the president said. “We love our country, we love our people, and we want to create more jobs in America, for Americans.”
Ortiz said all taxpaying Americans, regardless of their political affiliation, deserve to see their taxes lowered.
“Small businesses are owned by both Republicans and Democrats and they all need a tax break,” Ortiz told Breitbart News. “A bipartisan strategy to pass tax cuts not only makes sense, but will be more politically feasible. All small businesses need tax cuts, not just the ones with similar political ideologies.”
The president’s speech came on the heels of Job Creators Network’s newly launched multi-million dollar advocacy campaign on Tuesday to urge Congress to pass small business tax cuts. The seven-figure campaign intends to educate Americans about how tax cuts help boost wages, jobs, and the overall economy.
The new initiative boasts a new website, TaxCutsNow.com, Americans are urged to sign a tax cut petition, share a letter to Congress, and watch videos by small business advocates explaining why tax cuts are needed. A nationwide advertising blitz is also underway, featuring talk radio and television commercials, and social media ads to encourage tax reform.
One of Job Creators Network’s new commercials features La Huerta Grill & Market owner Laz Marquez explaining how the current tax code burdens and complicates his life as a small business owner.
The organization’s new initiative is designed to put pressure on Congressional lawmakers to pass a tax cut bill by Thanksgiving and make it retroactive to January 2017.
Part of the campaign includes a nationwide “Tax Cut Tour,” which will begin on Sunday, September 10 with a massive event in Oklahoma City, OK. The bus tour will conclude with a “15% on the 15th Rally” in Washington, D.C., on September 15, where legislators, several trade associations and headlined by economist Stephen Moore.
TaxCutsNow.com provides a list of the locations for the bus tour.
“Job Creators Network’s Tax Cuts Now campaign provides this ammunition that is necessary to win the tax cut fight,” Ortiz said.
