Contrary to others’ opinion, Rep. Marie Gluesenkamp Perez couldn’t be a stronger proponent of small businesses. She not only owns a small business, but she also conducted her entire campaign around helping other small businesses! And she is a member of the Committee on Small Business. Plus she has already spent time with small business owners here in Vancouver.
She may have voted “nay” on The Family & Small Business Act because so many issues were inserted in the bill with which she disagreed. As for the Omnibus Bill, once again Americans are told the complete opposite which spreads misinformation so as to brainwash others.
“This legislation is not funded in any way by personal tax increases on small businesses or working families making under $400,000, which is roughly 98% of all Americans” (Buttle, Forbes.com, 08/15/2022).
Voting in Rep. Perez as the 3rd District representative was the best thing we did, and we’re all the better for it. The alternative was unacceptable! Perez has made good on her campaign promises by engaging with small business owners and her constituents.
