On Saturday, Business groups pledged to work with President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris to help lift the U.S. economy impacted due to the coronavirus-induced recession starting February this year.
National Association of Manufacturers President and CEO Jay Timmons warned in a Saturday statement against making any drastic policy overhauls as the economy heals.
Timmons said, “Our focus at the National Association of Manufacturers has always been on policy—not politics, personality or process.”.
“It should be clear from the gains made by the Republican Party in this election that the American people are not interested in extreme policies from either party; they are looking for smart, stable, and solutions-oriented governance.”
Many other business groups were focused on helping the government.
U.S. Chamber of Commerce CEO Thomas J. Donohue expressed his happiness and congratulated Biden and Harris before adding that the nation needs
more coronavirus relief.
Donohue said, “American small businesses cannot afford for Congress to wait another three months to act.” “We stand ready to help our leaders get this much-needed legislation passed as quickly as possible.”
