The Biden administration’s claims of a thriving small business sector are nothing but a smokescreen, according to the Chair of the House Small Business Committee, Rep. Roger Williams. The Texas Republican blasted Vice President Kamala Harris’s upcoming speech in Raleigh, North Carolina, which is intended to highlight the administration’s successes in the economy and small business investments.
According to Williams, this is simply a PR stunt, and a speech from the Vice President will not help the small business owners who are still struggling under the disastrous policies of the Biden administration.
Acc. to Fox News, The White House has been bragging about the historically low unemployment rate of 3.5% in December, as well as the creation of 10.5 million small businesses during the administration’s first two years. However, Williams argues that these numbers are misleading and that small businesses are actually facing numerous challenges.
He points to the January jobs report, which showed that there were 10.5 million job openings and 4.2 million Americans quit their jobs, indicating that businesses are struggling to fill positions. Additionally, inflation remains stubbornly high at 6.5%, which cost the average North Carolina household $707 per month, according to the Joint Economic Committee.
Rep. Williams argues that the Vice President should focus more on the real issues facing small business owners, such as the increased costs of goods and supply chain disruptions that are delaying projects and making it harder to receive inventories. He also emphasized that entrepreneurship is always encouraged, but before anyone claims victory, much more needs to be done to help small business owners.
In conclusion, the Biden administration’s claims of a thriving small business sector are simply a façade, according to Rep. Roger Williams.
He argues that the Vice President should focus more on the real issues facing small businesses, such as inflation, supply chain disruptions, and the difficulty in finding qualified workers. The American people deserve better than a PR stunt, and it’s time for the Biden administration to take real action to help struggling small business owners.
