Welcome! The National Federation of Independent Business is branching out into an exciting, and perhaps a little daunting, new endeavor – blogging! This terrific new addition aims to enhance our social media presence, while bringing both members and followers of NFIB more insight into our advocacy, events and news!
I know that I am very excited to have this new platform to reach out to both members and followers of NFIB here in New York, talking about issues you face everyday. Increasing awareness is one part of the equation that will bring real positive change in this state! We are currently fighting against a minimum wage increase, pushing for real pension reform and doing our part to reform a business climate that ranks among the worst in the United States.
But that is just New York.
Our efforts nationally have been headline grabbing!
The voice of small business is being heard loud and clear across the country, especially in Washington D.C. For instance, did you know that NFIB, along with 26 states, has taken an historic lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) all the way to the Supreme Court? Truly remarkable and a perfect example of how strong the voice of small business can be!
So much to talk about, so little time! So buckle up and join me and NFIB on this new adventure!
