“The economy is coming back but Michigan small businesses are struggling and ’Help Wanted’ signs are posted all over our region as the Biden Administration continues to pay extra money to people who are not working. It’s unfair for small businesses who have to compete against the Biden Administration when they are looking to hire, and this extra benefit discourages work at a time when there are a lot of job opportunities,” said Congressman John Moolenaar.

"With Democrats in Washington spending trillions of dollars, inflation is a growing problem and prices are rising. This weekend, inflation will force Michigan residents to pay more for gas and groceries when they visit with family and friends," said Congressman John Moolenaar. "These are the highest gas prices in seven years, and the Democrats' policies harm American energy production while raising the cost of living on working families more than anyone else. I will continue to advocate for American energy independence and oppose harmful federal spending that distorts the economy and raises prices on Michigan families."

“Many rural communities in Michigan lack the infrastructure necessary to provide access to broadband service, making it more difficult for students to do homework and for seniors to access telemedicine,” said Moolenaar. “This new legislation complements my efforts to expand broadband access through the BOOST Act, and it would encourage providers to build more broadband infrastructure in our rural communities.”

“For many families, child care providers play a critical role in supporting parents and early childhood development. There have been child care shortages in rural areas, so this bill will help level the playing field and allow non-profit providers to apply for loans that will help them expand their facilities and offer new child care opportunities for Michigan families," said Congressman Moolenaar.

“When President Biden and Democrats spent $2 trillion in March, they pushed out extra money to people who are not working even though there are millions of job openings and gave billions to bail out states and cities which now have surpluses. Their $2 trillion in spending is distorting the economy, hurting small businesses, and making hardworking Michigan residents pay more for the products they use every day,” said Congressman John Moolenaar. “President Biden’s anti-pipeline stance is also contributing to the rise in gas prices and as we have seen this week pipelines are vital to ensuring Americans have a affordable, reliable energy. I will be working to stop these harmful economic policies so more Americans can go back to work, small businesses can grow and, hopefully, prices for everyday goods will be more stable.”
