Terry Receives National Federation of Independent Business Endorsement

Omaha, NE - Today, National Federation of Independent Business has endorsed Congressman Lee Terry (R-NE) for the 2014 election.

“As a member of Congress, I have a strong and clear record of supporting Nebraska’s job creators by voting to repeal the job killing health care law, removing burdensome regulations and simplifying the tax code,” said Rep. Lee Terry. “Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy and I will continue to work with excellent groups, like NFIB, to ensure they have the stability and security they need from the government to continue to grow and put America back to work.”

“We support the candidates who support small business, and each of these candidates has a stellar, 100-percent voting record for Main Street, mom-and-pop shops,” said Bob Hallstrom, Nebraska state director for the National Federation of Independent Business, America’s Voice of Small Business. “It bears reminding everyone that small businesses employ the majority of working Americans, generate almost all new jobs, but have distinctly different difficulties in remaining solvent than big businesses do.”

The endorsements for re-election for U.S. Reps. Jeff Fortenberry (1st Dist.), Lee Terry (2nd Dist.) and Adrian Smith (3rd Dist.) were made by NFIB’s SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, the association’s political action committee, and are based on positions regarding key small-business issues so far in this Congress, such as health care, taxes, and labor and regulations.
