U.S. Chamber of Commerce introducing Growth Agenda

As the new year gets underway, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is hoping the country's leaders and businesses will be part of a new agenda to help produce economic growth and resurgence in America.

The chamber, in a posting on its website, recently introduced its Growth Agenda that seeks to provide millions of unemployed citizens with jobs, offer secure programs for all and grow businesses in a united way.

“Today we remain mired in the slowest economic recovery since the 1940s, with annual growth rates hovering around 1 percent to 2 percent,” Sean Hackbarth said in the posting. Hackbarth also noted that our previous policymakers have not made the unerring choice of allowing prosperous growth in our country, and that they have chosen to follow their own personal agendas and plans.

"Choose growth. Judge each proposal on the basis of whether it will speed or impede the expansion of our economy,” the article said. 

“We are focusing on growth because it’s good for everyone,” Hackbarth said.

The chamber is hoping to deliver the American Dream to many people in our country and offer a “stronger, faster, and more broadly shared economic growth for all,” all while driving positive growth, the article said.
