WASHINGTON, D.C. — FreedomWorks today, along with aligned free market organizations, sent a coalition letter to Senate and House offices in support of the Pandemic Preparedness, Response, and Recovery Act, S. 4708, introduced by Sens. James Lankford (R-Okla.), Ron Johnson, (R-Wis.), and Rob Portman (R-Ohio). Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
“Americans are still reeling from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Blanket spending packages from Congress will not get the American economy back on track. Instead, targeted regulatory relief is the answer to helping small businesses regain their footing. S. 4708 puts us on a path toward this by removing regulatory barriers to economic recovery.
“Small businesses and self-employed entrepreneurs will help drive America’s economic recovery in the coming months by creating jobs and value. Therefore, it is critical that Congress get out of the way and allow the free market to do what it does best: provide."
Signers to the letter are Adam Brandon, President, FreedomWorks; Grover Norquist, President, Americans for Tax Reform; Brandon Arnold, Executive Vice President, National Taxpayers Union; Mario H. Lopez, President, Hispanic Leadership Fund; David Williams, President, Taxpayers Protection Alliance; Phil Kerpen, President, American Commitment; Seton Motley, President, Less Government; Ryan Ellis, President, Center for a Free Economy; Jonathan Bydlak, Interim Director, Governance Program, R Street Institute; The Honorable Bob Barr, President, Liberty Guard.
