Statement by Chairman Graves on the Imperial Presidency Report

House Small Business Committee Chairman Sam Graves (R-MO) today released the following statement on the Imperial Presidency Report:

"This report exposes the Obama administration's pattern of relentless government expansion that creates harmful uncertainty for small businesses. As job creators, small businesses should be a real priority, not a regulatory target. From the unprecedented power of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to the costly health care law, employers face new burdens under the administration's misplaced priorities. Small businesses told an NFIB survey this month they do not expect to hire in the next year, a result of the President's failed policies.

"We need to get the government out of the way to allow job creators to lift the economy as they invest in their businesses again. The President has shown time and again a lack of understanding of how businesses grow in the real world. As the Administration continues to skirt the deliberative legislative process and ignore current law, small businesses are left to operate in a cloud of tax and regulatory uncertainty."
