Executive Orders a Distraction from what Small Business Actually Needs

On the COVID related Executive Orders from President Trump this weekend, Main Street Alliance Executive Director Amanda Ballantyne had this to say:

“These executive orders are a distraction from what American families and small businesses actually need, which is a long term solution to keep our economy and small businesses afloat. Congress needs to come together to pass real legislation to address the core of the crisis, not short-term, piecemeal, pet policies that continue to cause confusion and will ultimately harm small businesses. This seems like a set up for an electoral strategy more than anything else.  From the dangerous payroll tax cut to putting states’ already fragile budgets on the line for unrealistic changes to the UI system, these Executive Orders show how out-of-touch the Administration is with the needs of small business owners and millions of unemployed people.”
