The American Supply Association and dozens of associations announced the launch of a new coalition to oppose the Biden administration’s job-killing tax proposals.

America’s Job Creators for a Strong Recovery is a coalition of associations representing individual and family-owned businesses and corporations that oppose job-killing tax increases as the country looks to move past the COVID-19 pandemic. Tax increases on America’s job creators would stall the economic recovery rather than fuel it and counteract the economic benefits of smart infrastructure spending.

“The record tax hikes that Democrats are seeking to ram through could not come at a worse time for America’s job creators who are just beginning to recover from a crippling pandemic,” said National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors CEO Eric Hoplin. “Employers support smart infrastructure to ensure America’s 21st century competitiveness, but it shouldn’t be used as a Trojan horse to enact record-high taxes on America’s individually and family-owned businesses.”  

“The pandemic has taxed individually and family-owned businesses enough — taxing them again while they are still struggling to recover just goes too far,” said Main Street Employers Coalition Executive Director Chris Smith. “These tax hikes would put the path of the recovery at such risk, so we need to make sure the voice of Main Street is heard loud and clear with the people and places that matter most.”

America’s Job Creators for a Strong Recovery will focus on advertising, grassroots efforts and earned media in a number of key states represented by moderate House and Senate Democrats who hold the keys to this effort.
