Small Business Owners Optimistic About President Trump’s First 100 Days Agenda
National Write Your Congressman (NWYC) has found small business owners voicing high levels of optimism for the incoming administration’s plans for the US economy and their own business prospects in its Q4 2016 Index. NWYC, an organization that gives small businesses a voice in American government, issued its Quarterly Index measuring small business owners and operators’ sentiment towards Congress and their confidence in the US government.
The Q4 2016 Index found its membership of small business owners expect the most direct and positive impact on their 2017 business results from five specific components of President Trump’s first 100 days agenda: tax reduction, health care reform, regulation relief, elimination of corruption and energy production.
The renewed sense of optimism is based on small business owners’ opinions that the overall business climate, long-term success of their business and revenue growth will improve as new the administration takes power.
“Every day, NWYC listens to small business owners across the country and this quarter’s Index shows what we hear in the field — that owners are encouraged by President Trump’s first 100 days agenda and have a specific mandate for their members of Congress,” said Randy Ford president of National Write Your Congressman. “The uptick in our members’ confidence in the fourth quarter of 2016 is encouraging as we work to make their voices heard to Congress.”
NWYC’s poll represents the opinions of more than 1,000 NWYC members across 46 states in the construction, services, manufacturing and agriculture industries.
“As the engine driving the US economy, small business owners are revved up for a powerful first quarter and NWYC will be working alongside our membership of construction workers, farmers, machinists and financial service providers to make sure their voices and opinions are heard by Congress,” said Ford.
