Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed— Continued August 4, 2015
Patty Murray, D-WA
"I recently heard from a small business owner by the name of Laura. She owns a small auto repair shop in Renton, WA. She shared something that I hear all the time from business owners: Doing the right thing by workers starts a virtuous cycle. Laura said, “When workers have more money, businesses have more customers. With more customers, businesses can hire more workers, which in turn generates more customers.”"

Tom McClintock, R-CA
"Whether as a small-business owner for the past 28 years, a volunteer coordinator for local county fairs and community festivals or a charity fundraiser, Kathy is the paragon of a go-to person."

Jeb Hensarling, R-TX
"We have one national consumer credit czar who decides now. It is Washington. Washington decides whether or not you can have a credit card. Washington decides whether or not you can have a mortgage. Washington now decides whether or not you can get a small business line of credit."
Dodd-Frank Bill July 22, 2015
Christopher Coons, D-DE
"As the leading Democrat on the committee charged with overseeing the financial services funding bills here in the Senate, I think it is critical that we work together to improve Wall Street reforms where we can rather than reverse what progress we have made. Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, a consumer or a banker, a CEO or a small business owner, a family member or a financial services worker, we can all agree that we do not want another financial crisis. Nobody wants another bailout to banks."
Export-Import Bank July 15, 2015
Buddy Carter, R-GA
"As a small-business man, having owned three independent retail pharmacies for the last 27 years, I understand the value in business of cutting costs and increasing revenues. It is important. You have to both cut costs and increase revenues, and you have to grow your business."
