Entry Title Date
Bureau Of Consumer Financial Protection Small Business Advisory Board Act April 10, 2014
Denny Heck, D-WA
"Yet, one group was left out, and that group was America’s small businesses. While identified as “small,” they are mighty when it comes to our local economy and job creation. As a small business owner, I know they have insight to offer during the development of new rules and regulations."
Hajji Saleem Aakhir Muhammad April 4, 2014
Albio Sires, D-NJ
"Mr. Muhammad of Elizabeth, New Jersey, departed this life on January 6, 2012, at the age of 83. He served in the United States Army Air Force and was a decorated World War II veteran. Mr. Muhammad was also an original member of the 332nd Fighters Group Squadron, an all Black unit known as the Tuskegee Airmen, for which he received Congress’ highest and most distinguished civilian award, the Congressional Gold Medal of Honor. Following his service, Mr. Muhammad was a small business owner and entrepreneur in New Jersey."
Pro-Growth Budgeting Act Of 2013 April 4, 2014
Chris Stewart, R-UT
"I have a degree in economics. I was a small business owner. I understand this isn’t rocket science. The modeling of this is relatively simple. It is certainly something that we could do, and we hurt ourselves when we don’t allow us to take advantage of this modeling."
Save American Workers Act Of 2014 April 3, 2014
Candice Miller, R-MI
"Madam Speaker, being a single mom is tough—it is really tough, and what we do here in Washington shouldn’t make it tougher. Being a small business owner and a job creator is tough. Again, what we do here in Washington shouldn’t make it tougher. The 40-hour workweek has been the bedrock of our economy for decades, and workers and families have come to depend on it—that is, of course, until ObamaCare changed the rules."
Protecting Volunteer Firefighters And Emergency Responders Act Of 2014 April 2, 2014
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"My husband developed a small business. He managed to pay health care for his people. He was proud to do it. But you know not every business is fair and just and right. So, yes, once in a while we have to say let’s all work together to make sure people are covered. When I was a little kid, my mother used to tell me all the time: Without your health care, you have nothing. If you are sick, you got nothing."
