Is Government Holding Back Your Business? We’re Listening

WASHINGTON D.C. – Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), the Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, today released a new video, launching, to listen to the personal stories of constituents, Californians and nationwide job creators about how government impacts job creation directly to Washington.

“Americans have a right to an efficient, effective government that works for them. American job creators deserve the opportunity to succeed and grow here in the United States. Government should deliver predictability, letting innovators deliver results,” Issa says in the video. “Our job on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee is to help both taxpayers and businesses secure these rights. But to get our job right we need help from you, our country’s proven job creation experts. Would you be willing to tell us about your experience? We’re listening.”

By visiting, innovators throughout the nation can describe how government impacts businesses, detailing where they think Washington helps or hurts.

“For nearly 30 years, I’ve run a small business, signed the fronts of paychecks, and created jobs and opportunity for my employees,” Issa concludes the video by saying. “We’re applying my lessons learned – and the experience of Congressional Democrats, Republicans and the people we serve – to find a balanced approach to Washington’s role in the lives of American job creators today, and in the future. We’re looking forward to hearing from you, too.”
