Over the past decade, the U.S. has averaged a mere 1.5% annual economic growth. It’s time to turn things around. Growing the U.S. economy will create jobs, increase wages, and expand opportunities for all Americans.

Economic growth must be our nation’s top priority.


This year, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has been traveling across the country to hear directly from America’s job creators—small business owners. From Detroit to Atlanta, Chicago to Baton Rouge, American businesses are looking to Washington to create the policies that will spur economic growth across our country.

How do we spur economic growth? We listen to America’s job creators.

America’s Job Creators Have Spoken:

Pass Health Care Reform


From higher taxes on medical devices and health insurance to restrictions on health savings and flexible savings accounts, the current health care law is strangling growth.

America’s Job Creators Have Spoken:

Expand Trade Opportunities


Millions of American jobs depend on America’s ability to trade with other countries. Half of all U.S. manufacturing jobs depend on exports, and 49 out of every 50 U.S. companies that ship to other countries are small businesses.

America’s Job Creators Have Spoken:

Let’s Rebuild America


Our country’s transportation system is aging and negatively affecting thousands of communities, multiple industries and job sectors.  Modernizing America’s transportation network will better connect people and places, move goods more efficiently, boost our economy, and ensure our quality of life and safety.
