August 9, 2012 Contact: Chase Kroll email@example.com Blaine, MN -- Michele Bachmann met with business leaders and job creators in St. Cloud today. The discussion was anchored on what Congress can do to change the current environment of uncertainty and stagnation to one of prosperity and growth. Bachmann said, "These business owners are the key to prosperity in Minnesota. We've consistently talked about the need to lower taxes on employees and employers as the best action to jumpstart hiring and growth in the private sector." Bachmann's campaign manager, Chase Kroll, said the meeting was requested by the group because of Bachmann's business experience. "Michele is a small business owner and shares their experiences. Since becoming a member of Congress, she has focused on commonsense job growth by ending excessive regulation and taxation. She opposed the Wall Street bailouts and failed stimulus plans and is a leader on the repeal of Obamacare-- the number one job killer for small businesses. Businesses and families across the sixth district know Michele is on their side."
