Small business group applauds President Biden’s commitment to economic growth through Bidenomics
Statement by Small Business for America’s Future Co-chair Shaundell Newsome on President Biden’s visit to Largo, Maryland
Sept. 14, 2023 –I was pleased to hear President Biden today talk about an economic approach that will continue to help Main Street small businesses grow and succeed. Our economy is showing signs of resilience with a strong hiring market and record low unemployment. This is no time to pursue extreme economic policies that could shut down the federal government or derail our progress.
According to a new Small Business for America’s Future survey, nearly 60% of small business owners are optimistic about the direction of the economy but feel that it could be shattered during the current budget negotiations where some in Congress are threatening a government shutdown. Seventy-eight percent of respondents said they believe a shutdown would negatively impact the economy and small businesses.
Instead of prolonged debate over the budget, lawmakers should focus on passing common sense legislation that helps small business owners and their families like the Inflation Reduction Act. It addresses high healthcare, a major concern of small business owners and stands as a testament to policies tailored to support our growth and stability. This approach resonates deeply with small business owners like myself, who are the backbone of our communities.
The federal economic policies and initiatives of the last few years are working to create an environment where businesses like mine can thrive, providing opportunities for both growth and stability. We need to continue this commitment to inclusive and equitable growth, prioritizing investments in infrastructure, education, and healthcare.
As a small business owner, I appreciate the forward-thinking strategies that are being implemented to support entrepreneurs and local businesses. The emphasis on innovation, clean energy, and workforce development aligns perfectly with the needs of many small businesses.
Here is what small business owners are saying:
“Today’s event highlighted the transformative potential of smart economic policy for small businesses like mine. However, the looming threat of a government shutdown could disrupt everything, negatively impacting our economy. It is crucial for Congress to prioritize the needs of small businesses in budget negotiations and pass a spending plan on time.”

“As a small business owner, I resonate deeply with the shift towards growing the economy from the middle out and the bottom up. These policies are creating an environment where businesses like mine can not only thrive but also contribute to the stability of our communities.”

“President Biden’s address today outlined a clear vision for economic growth. We need to continue building an economy that is both inclusive and equitable. The emphasis on investments in infrastructure, education, and healthcare are crucial pillars for a resilient economy. As a small business owner, I’m grateful for the forward-thinking strategies being implemented to support entrepreneurs like myself.”
