Where do Buck and Bennet stand on business?

The Denver Business Journal interviewed Bennet and Buck and asked them five questions on business-related topics. Here are their answers.

Denver Business Journal: What is the most important thing that you can do as a U.S. senator to help businesses jump-start this economy again?

Buck: I think that what we need to do is, we need to encourage small businesses that account for 70 percent of the workforce in America to expand and hire new employees. We do that by reducing corporate tax rates, by giving small businesses some certainty with what their costs are going to be in the future. We need to make sure that they are not burdened by rising health care costs, rising taxes, inflation.

Bennet: I think that in the short run, absolutely the most important thing we can do is help small business get access to credit.

In the medium term, having an energy policy that would create energy independence for the United States and create jobs here would be enormously helpful to dealing with the structural issues of a recession where we saw a lot of job loss but a lot of productivity gains at the same time. Some of these jobs are never coming back, and we need to be inventive about how to create jobs in Colorado and across the country.   More -
