Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have been doing their best to appeal to business owners on the campaign trail. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton recently rolled out what she calls ajob-creating package of reforms to jumpstart small business startups specifically.
Karen Mills, who serves as an informal advisor to the Clinton campaign, told Yahoo Finance that she believes Clinton can turn plans on paper into solutions that will have a positive impact on small business owners and workers.
“My experience in working with her over a whole number of years is that she’s really good at taking these ideas and figuring out how to make them happen on the ground,” said Mills, who also served in President Barack Obama’s Cabinet as the administrator of the US Small Business Administration (SBA) from 2009 until August 2013. “She knows it doesn’t matter if you have good policy if it’s not getting into the hands of small business owners.”
Small businesses—which create around two-thirds of all new American jobs—are key for economic growth, added Mills.
“Small businesses really are the backbone of the economy,” she said. “Half the people who work in this country own or work for small businesses … What that means in Washington is that small business has to have a seat at the policy table when you’re thinking about how to drive the economy.”
Clinton, whose father was a small business owner, has emphasized that her small business plan is a key priority and aims to appeal to the range of 28 million small businesses and entrepreneurs that come in different shapes and sizes.
