The Job Creators Network rolled out a "small business prosperity plan" endorsed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Wednesday.

Job Creators Network President and CEO Alfredo Ortiz said small businesses need regulatory and tax policy certainty, and the prosperity plan gives lawmakers a roadmap to follow. He said that Congress and President Biden should make the Trump-era Tax Cuts and Jobs Act permanent.

Gingrich, who appeared virtually at the launch event, said small businesses are job creators and the center of "entrepreneurship."

Gingrich said the prosperity plan would help lawmakers foster the "next generation" of entrepreneurs. 

"I'll do all I can to help further the concept of a small business prosperity plan," he said. 

The prosperity plan calls for Congress to reduce government spending as a way to fight high inflation.

Ken Blackwell, former Ohio Secretary of State, also delivered remarks at the news conference and endorsed the prosperity plan.
