Public Statements

Providing for Consideration of H.R. 4, Small Business Paperwork Mandate Elimination Act of 2011

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. HECK. I thank the gentleman.

Mr. Speaker, today I also rise in support of H.R. 4, the Small Business Paperwork Mandate Elimination Act of 2011. There is no doubt this job-killing 1099 hidden tax deserves repeal.

Nevada's unemployment rate is a Nation-high 14.5 percent. We need to create jobs. Eighty percent of Nevada's employees work for small businesses. So I asked small business owners what the government should do to create jobs.

Paul Beehler, a small business owner, operates Midas shops throughout southern Nevada, buys multiple auto parts from multiple venders, said regulations and hidden taxes, like the 1099 hidden tax, keep him from hiring new workers.

You know what? More than 170 small business organizations Nationwide agree with Paul and have called for the 1099 hidden tax's repeal.

Mr. CROWLEY. Mr. Speaker, will the gentleman yield?

Mr. HECK. No, Mr. Speaker, I shall not yield.

Washington said it wants to hear job-creating ideas from the business community. Here is one that they are screaming about.

Nevada's families are hurting. American families are hurting. It's time to end the job-killing 1099 hidden tax and get Nevadans back to work.
