Denham backs Republican plan for job creation and economic growth

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Jeff Denham (CA-19) today issued the following statement about the Republican Plan for America’s Job Creators -- a package of common sense reforms that match Republicans’ ongoing commitment to promote job creation and economic growth.

“I came to Washington to get our fiscal house in order, grow the nation’s economy and put Americans back to work. The Republican plan for job creators and economic growth does exactly this. In the time I have been in office, Republicans have already changed the culture of spending in Washington. However, I know that we must also grow the economy through small businesses and entrepreneurs across the country.

“The Republican Plan for America’s Job Creators builds upon our Pledge to America and will help reduce burdensome regulations that have continued to hinder small businesses across the country. There are 3.2 million small businesses in California alone and we need to create an environment where these job creators can start hiring again.” – Representative Jeff Denham

Rep. Denham held several small business listening sessions in Fresno and Modesto last week. He talked with small business owners about the effect that burdensome government regulations have had on their industries throughout the district. Business owners throughout Denham’s district described how regulations and taxes on their small businesses are inhibiting their growth and as a result, the growth of the local economies, according to a news release from Denham's office.
