Afternoon TEA: Small Business Drives The U.S. Economy

Did you know?

Even when times aren’t hard, 78 percent of Americans live paycheck to paycheck and 51 million Americans don’t earn enough to afford a basic monthly budget.

Meanwhile, a recent study underscored the deep and permanent damage that a natural gas production ban would do to our country: 7.5 million jobs lost in two years and a $7.1 trillion hit to the economy over 10 years.

COVID-19 has wreaked havoc in the United States and the rest of the world, so the first priority for lawmakers is to keep costs low for consumers and help support wage growth. This means that we must do everything possible to keep clean, low-cost and abundant energy flowing for American families and manufacturing companies that face the biggest crisis in years.
