Business Roundtable Statement on House Budget Resolution

August 24, 2021

Washington - Business Roundtable President & CEO Joshua Bolten today issued the following statement on House passage of a budget resolution:

“As the House advances the process for a budget reconciliation package, Business Roundtable remains deeply concerned about potential tax increases on U.S. job creators that would counteract the benefits of infrastructure investment. As we’ve cautioned, the proposed tax increases coupled with a massive $3.5 trillion in additional spending would not only saddle Americans with a substantial debt burden but also undermine the competitiveness of the U.S. economy, businesses and workers.”
