Independent U.S. Senate Candidate and Businessman Greg Orman Announces Plan To Get Washington Working for Small Businesses


"Orman: Washington is broken, and nowhere is that more evident than in the challenging environment Congress has created for small businesses"

Olathe – Independent U.S. Senate candidate and Olathe businessman Greg Orman today announced his plan to put Washington to work at creating a better climate for small businesses by spurring investment, streamlining regulations and reforming student loans to create the skilled work force business needs to stay competitive.

“Washington is broken, and nowhere is that more evident than in the challenging environment Congress has created for small businesses,” Orman said. “I want to fix Washington’s broken system so that small businesses have the tools they need to succeed and grow jobs in communities across Kansas.”

Orman, a successful businessman with a strong record of creating jobs and opportunities, knows first-hand about what it takes to build a business and create jobs.

Small businesses are a critical part of the Kansas economy. According to the Small Business Administration, Kansas’ approximately 243,000 small businesses employ nearly 600,000 people – about 53 percent of the workforce. They also represent nearly 97 percent of all the employers in the state.

Orman’s plan has five simple, commonsense components that could be put in place rapidly if the next Congress decides to focus on the real problems small businesses face, rather than partisan posturing.

Orman’s plan calls for:

  • Fixing the Dodd-Frank bill to increase small business lending
  • Reviewing every federal regulation every 10 years so that businesses are not held back by obsolete rules.
  • Reforming student lending and bringing accountability to higher education spending so that tuition money goes to education not administration
  • Streamlining federal small business programs so people can find and utilize existing resources
  • Forcing regulators at the state and federal levels to work together so the regulatory environment is less complicated for business owners.
