About The American Small Business League

President Obama stated, “I am proud to have the support of the American Small Business League and their grassroots efforts to help protect American small businesses.”

In one of our many successful lawsuits against the Pentagon, Federal District Court Judge William Alsup described the American Small Business League (ASBL) by saying, “So it would be more like a David and Goliath. You get to come in there and be the underdog again against the big company and against the big government.”

Over the last two decades, the ASBL has been the strongest voice in American to protect all federal programs established by the 1953 Small Business Act, and to assist the nation’s 30 million+ small businesses and small businesses owned by women, minorities and service disabled veterans.

Most Americans don’t realize the Small Business Act of 1953 is the single largest economic stimulus program ever passed by Congress to create jobs and boost the middle class economy.

Today that law mandates that a minimum of 23% of the total value of all federal contracts and subcontracts be awarded to small businesses. Extensive litigation and research by the ASBL has exposed that in reality, legitimate small businesses in America have never received the full 23%. The real number is no more than 3% of all federal contracts and subcontracts. That is a short fall of more than $300 billion a year.

In the national media and in federal courts, the ASBL has had a larger presence than all other organizations that claim to represent the interest of small businesses combined.

To date, the ASBL has won over 100 Freedom of Information legal battles exposing the rampant fraud in federal small business programs.
