Hundreds of small businesses across the United States submitted personal messages to Americans for Limited Government this week; urging the federal government to re-open the country so workers can survive the ongoing Coronavirus crisis and support their fellow Americans.
“30 million small businesses form the backbone of America’s free enterprise economy, and many have been financially devastated by the health emergency driven economic shutdown. Health clinics, home builders, car detailers, realtors and virtually every other local Main Street businesses are teetering on the brink of disaster and if America loses these businesses, it will ensure a very long recession. The 100+ businesses featured in the videos represent more than $1 billion in revenue and 1,000 employees,” said Rick Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government.
“President Trump is right to emphasize the need to get America back to work soon, these videos show more than 100 American business people whose small businesses are in danger of bankruptcy due to the health emergency shutdown,” he added.
“The President wisely has taken steps to protect America from the initial projections of over a million deaths putting measures in place which mitigate against this disaster, the impact of the economic reaction to the virus threatens to destroy millions of lives by driving them out of business and already throwing 3.2 million Americans into the unemployment lines. At some point in the very near future, the President will need to begin urging a return to normalcy as the economic and personal damage done by the cure exceeds the potential harm from the virus,” Manning concluded.
