Reid Spokesman: Does Michael Steele Speak For Senate Republicans On Small Businesses?

Washington, DC – Jim Manley, spokesman for Nevada Senator Harry Reid, released the following statement today in reaction to comments from Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele regarding America’s small businesses:
“It sounds like Michael Steele is speaking for every Senate Republican who has yet to support the small business jobs bill that Democrats are fighting for.  Our bill gives small businesses additional lines of credit that Chairman Steele and Republicans deem unnecessary and it provides small businesses with $55 billion in tax relief.
“Republicans like Michael Steele who refuse to support this bill are either not paying attention or simply out-of-touch with the economic struggles that America’s small businesses are facing.”
