WASHINGTON — President Obama sent a proposed legislative agenda to Congress on Tuesday aimed at accelerating start-up and small business growth through a series of tax cuts, making it easier for companies to go public and expanding access to new capital.
“One year ago today, I called for an all-hands-on-deck effort to ensure that America remains the best place on Earth to turn a great idea into a successful business,” Obama said. “The private sector responded, with the Startup America Partnership launching new entrepreneurial networks all across the country. Today, we’re taking new steps that build on that progress, and I urge Congress to send me a common-sense bipartisan bill that does even more to expand access to capital and cut taxes for America’s entrepreneurs and small businesses.”
