Senate must work together to save 30 million small businesses

March 20, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in support of the $1 trillion Senate plan to rescue the U.S. economy from the fallout of the Chinese coronavirus:

“In virtually every retail establishment with glassware there are signs that say ‘you break you buy it.’ It is in this spirit that Americans for Limited Government supports Congressional measures to ensure that 30 million small businesses nationwide are able to restart operations seamlessly once the public health emergency from the Chinese coronavirus ends.

“President Trump and the federal government as a whole made a decision that protecting potentially millions of lives, more than the total American losses in every war we’ve ever fought, superseded the current health of the U.S. economy. As part of this decision, the President and Congress have a responsibility to use our vast wealth to shore up individuals and businesses that are being put on the verge of bankruptcy overnight.

“If done correctly, the next two months will not only save potentially millions of lives, but will put America’s economy in a position to immediately rebound. Republicans and Democrats must work together to create solutions that recognize the economic plight that our nation has been thrown into, and set aside partisanship. We have to put American workers and businesses first so that after the virus, we can restore the economic miracle of the previous three years.”
