Reid: Republicans Blocked Effort To Ease Burden On Small Businesses

Washington, DC – Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement this evening after Republicans blocked an effort to ease the burden of paperwork on America’s small businesses:
“Republicans blocked us from eliminating burdensome paperwork that is hindering small businesses’ ability to create jobs.  Ignoring the millions of Americans who are out of work and the millions more who are struggling to make ends meet, Republicans decided to play politics rather than help small business owners.  Despite Republican opposition, Democrats will continue to stand up for small businesses and resolve this issue.
