Rep. Gosar Listens to Local Business Leaders
'Families and Businesses are Hurting’      

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) held roundtables in Prescott, Cottonwood and Prescott Valley yesterday to discuss the government slowdown, the debt ceiling, Obamacare and other issues with local business leaders. The events were attended by business owners, leaders from local Chambers of Commerce and government officials.

After the roundtables Rep. Gosar said, “People are fed up with the gridlock and partisanship in Washington. They are sick of feeling like pawns in a political chess game. Their families and businesses are hurting.”

“Hardworking Americans want an environment where they can thrive,” Rep. Gosar continued. “I will remain focused on solutions that get government out of the way and spur private-sector growth and job creation.”

Prescott: More than 30 business leaders came out Monday morning to the Hassayampa Inn in Prescott to discuss the small business issues impacting them. These business leaders are concerned that Obamacare will stifle economic growth and limit their ability to grow their companies.
