ASBA Looks for Bipartisan Solutions on Key Issues

The American Small Business Alliance is calling on the new Congress to work in a bipartisan manner as it addresses the many critical challenges facing small business and America.

"It's time for our leaders to end the partisan wrangling that has hamstrung Washington for the last few years," said Joel Marks, ASBA's Executive Director. "Too many politicians rather score cheap political points that fight for what's in the nation's best interest."

ASBA continues to seek sensible solutions on issues such as health care, education, tax fairness and regulatory reform both nationally and in the states.
