Nonprofit Org Cites Candidate’s Strong Support for Small Business Friendly Initiatives

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading representative of small business owners, is endorsing Liz Cheney for Wyoming’s Seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Cheney’s commitment to issues that Wyoming small business owners care about makes her an ideal candidate for Congress.

“Liz Cheney will be a great defender of Wyoming small businesses in the U.S. House,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “She understands that federal policies on taxes, regulations, and health care are making it hard for small business owners to succeed. In Congress, she will protect the liberty of her state’s small businesses so that they can be free to create prosperity and new jobs.”

“Small business owners, ranchers and farmers, and families across Wyoming know the federal government under Barack Obama taxes too much, regulates too much, and threatens our jobs and livelihoods,” said Cheney. “Hillary Clinton and liberal Democrats in Congress have pledged to continue the failed economic policies of the past eight years that have devastated our families, our businesses and our way of life. I will fight to reverse these trends by working to repeal Obamacare, reduce out of control regulations that threaten Wyoming energy and ag producers, and cut taxes and simplify our tax code so our small business owners and families can keep more of their hard earned dollars.”

Cheney’s endorsement today comes from the NFIB SAFE Trust, the organization’s political action committee. Small business owners vote in high percentages and they are influential in their communities. NFIB members in Wyoming will work hard to send Liz Cheney to Congress.
