We are closing to meeting the brand-new Congress. The IFA is confident the radical reshuffle in the House and Senate will lead to a more business-friendly country.
The country used the mid-term elections to state they were not satisfied with the government’s handling of economic issues. Jason Straczewski, writing for Franchising World, has the outlined the IFA’s expectations from the new congress. He seems assured that the needs of the franchising community will be looked after: “With Republicans in control of the U.S. House of Representatives, the balance of power is likely to shift toward the concerns of the business community, leaving unions and other anti-employer activists to seek new venues for their issues.”
We hope that small-business will be at the top of the government’s agenda. Anyone interested in the political issues relevant to franchising should read the article. Straczewski outlines the IFA’s stance on a number of key issues, such as taxing and spending, immigration and health care.
It’s an exciting time in the country and we hope that the new Congress will deliver the necessary results for the franchising community.
