Entry Title Date
Affordable Care Act May 21, 2015
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"Mr. President, shown in this picture I have in the Chamber is Christina from Stratford, CT. She is a small business owner, and she has a story that is becoming pretty familiar all across the country. She left a job a couple of years ago that provided for employer-based health care, and she wanted to start her own business in Bridgeport, CT, right next to Stratford. So she stayed insured through COBRA for a period of time until it expired, and then she had to go out into the individual market. She recalls having to fill out a 15-page questionnaire when she was applying for individual coverage. She said it asked about “anything that I had even remotely discussed with my doctor.” Unfortunately for her, some of those things—preexisting conditions—meant that she was denied health care coverage."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act—Continued May 21, 2015
Dan Sullivan, R-AK
"Every fishing vessel, when you look at one, is a small business. What do they do? They take risks. I am sure some have seen “The Deadliest Catch.” A lot of times they are family-owned. They work hard, and they produce a great product—a great product—king crab, fresh Alaska salmon—a great product. These are classic American small businesses, which brings me to my amendment."
Recognizing Innogenomics Technologies May 20, 2015
David Vitter, R-LA
"Mr. President, small businesses often have the unique ability to pinpoint serious problems in their communities while working with local agencies and other small businesses to get things done. Sometimes these small businesses provide ground-breaking, innovative technological solutions to problems that have gone unsolved for decades. As we close out National Small Business Week, I am proud to recognize InnoGenomics Technologies of New Orleans, LA. as a Small Business of the Day for National Small Business Week."
American Research And Competitiveness Act Of 2015 May 20, 2015
Alex Mooney, R-WV
"According to a recent study, this policy will increase overall investment in research by $33 billion and result in 300,000 research-related jobs. In practical terms, this means that a small business in the beautiful State of West Virginia—which I represent—or where you live that spends $5 million a year on research could be eligible for a $500,000 tax credit."
Recognizing Haring Catfish May 20, 2015
David Vitter, R-LA
"Congratulations again to Haring Catfish for being selected as a Small Business of the Day for National Small Business Week. Thank you for your continued commitment to providing the high-quality and delicious catfish in Louisiana. "
