>>> SMALL BUSINESS OPTIMISM HAS BEEN AT A RECORD HIGH IN RECENT MONTHS.

THE DEMOCRATS ARE NOW TAKING CONTROL OF THE HOUSE, SO ARE MOM AND POP BUSINESSES GETTING WORRIED? JOINING US NOW IS JUANITA DUGGAN, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF THE NFIB.

WHAT IS THE FEELING NOW THAT DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO RUN THE HOUSE? >>.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME, STUART.

NFIB HAS BEEN REPRESENTING SMALL BUSINESSES EXCLUSIVELY FOR 75 YEARS.

WE HAVE BEEN DEEPLY INVOLVED IN.

THE ELECTORAL PROCESS FOR THAT LONG. WE SCRUTINIZE CANDIDATES FOR THEIR SMALL BUSINESS VOTING RECORDS AND WE SUBJECT CANDIDATES TO INTENSE QUESTIONNAIRES ABOUT HOW. SO WE PROBABLY ENDORSED AROUND 250 CANDIDATES THIS YEAR, AND MANY THECHL WO MANY OFECHL WO MANY OF THL WO MANY OF THE WO MANY OF THEMWO MANY OF THEM WON RE-ELECTION. STUART: HOW DO YOUR PEOPLE FEEL? YOU GOT THE DEMOCRATS RUNNING THE HOUSE. THEY’RE NOT GOING TO BE REAL KEEN ON EXPANDING THE. HOW DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION FEEL? HOW DO YOUR MOM AND POP BUSINESSES, HOW DO THEY FEEL? >> OUR LAST NUMBERS CAME OUT IN OCTOBER, THEY. I THINK YOU KNOW THE OPTIMISM INDEX IS HITTING RECORD HIGHS FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS SINCE THE PRESIDENT WAS ELECTED. WE’LL SEE HOW THEY FEEL ABOUT ELECTION WHEN WE GET OUR NEXT. STUART: HAVE YOU ANY IDEA? LOOK, THE ELECTION IS SEVERAL DAYS OLD NOW.

GET SOME FEEDBACK FROM YOUR PEOPLE, SURELY. OUR MAIN PRIORITY IS TO MAKE SURE THAT THAT SMALL BUSINESS TAX CUT THAT WAS ADOPTED A YEAR AGO, THAT IT REMAINS PERMANENT AND THAT NOTHING HAPPENS TO IT.

WE’LL BE ABLE TO MAKE A GREAT CASE TO THE NEW DEMOCRATS WHO RUN THE HOUSE THAT THAT SMALL BUSINESS TAX CUT IS INHERENTLY.

DIFFERENT AND PERMANENT FOR THE SMALL BUSINESS PART OF THE ECONOMY.

THAT WE ARE HALF THE ECONOMY.

EVERY THREE NEW JOBS IS CREATED BY SMALL BUSINESS. SO NFIB ACTUALLY LOOKS FORWARD TO THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE THAT DIALOGUE WITH THE NEW LEADERSHIP IN THE HOUSE ABOUT EXACTLY WHAT THAT TAX CUT HAS DONE FOR MOM AND POPS, AND I THINK THAT.

THEY ARE GOING TO LOOK AT IT AS SOMETHING THAT’S BEEN INHERENTLY GOOD.
