Congressman Leonard Lance takes aim at current administration in a visit to local deli.

In a recent press conference, New Jersey Congressman Leonard Lance railed against the current economic policies that he said were hurting small business owners in the state.

Entrepreneur Early Stage Company reports that Congressman Leonard Lance spoke before a group of reporters on Thursday at a local deli to announce plans to help turn the economy around for businesses in the state. The congressman said that extending the Bush-era tax cuts was an important way to help the economy, along with easing the amount of regulations placed on businesses. He also called for reform on medical malpractice lawsuits.

&"Higher taxes, unchecked spending, government bailouts and new health care mandates are just a few of the job-killing policies passed by Congress that are putting a strain on local small and medium-sized businesses like the Robert Treat Deli here in Westfield,&" said Lance in an interview with the news source.

One of Lance's targets, President Barack Obama, recently made news for small business when he visited New Jersey last month. On a visit to a local sub shop, Obama touted the pending small business legislation currently in Congress.
