"We applaud the president's plan to expedite payments to small businesses contracting with the federal government and to extend the payroll tax cuts for these companies. We agree that business owners need timely payments and tax incentives to pay their employees, hire new staff and invest in new opportunities. The NGLCC calls on Congress to immediately pass the president's plan to put America back to work by creating new jobs and helping small businesses hire more employees. The time has come to choose action over gridlock and pass the American Jobs Act."

-- National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Co-Founders Justin Nelson and Chance Mitchell in an e-mailed statement on the President's speech about the American Jobs Act.
