The Economic Growth Act of 2008, with its emphasis on America's small business and middle class, is a much-needed jumpstart to our nation’s economy. This bill is a commonsense approach to protecting and preserving American jobs. History has shown that the most effective way to reinvigorate the economy and spur economic growth is to ensure that job creators face a lower tax and regulatory burden. Congress and the Administration must pass an economic package that actually works to stimulate our economy long-term. Protecting and securing America’s jobs is the taxpayer friendly approach to accomplishing this.
