Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Financial Institution Customer Protection Act Of 2015 February 4, 2016
Roger Williams, R-TX
"As a small-business owner for 44 years, I have seen it all—or at least I thought I saw it all—and I am deeply troubled over a Federal Government program that I believe to be, at best, immoral and, at worst, illegal: Operation Choke Point."
Recognizing Harlow’S Donuts And Bakery December 17, 2015
David Vitter, R-LA
"Over the years, Harlow’s Donut and Bakery has been awarded statewide and national accolades. In 2011, Harlow’s was featured as a Travelocity Local Secret, Big Find and more recently was honored by the North Rapides Business and Industry Alliance as a Small Business of the Month in March 2015."
Military Construction And Veterans Affairs And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 December 17, 2015
Robert Dold, R-IL
"Today we are voting on a historic bill. Frankly, as a small-business owner, when I came to Congress, it was largely because I felt the government was making it harder and harder for me to put the key in the door and open up my small business each and every day. They should be making it easier for me to open up my business, easier for me to hire that next individual."
Farewell Address October 29, 2015
John Boehner, R-OH
"I leave with no regrets, no burdens. If anything, I leave the way I started—just a regular guy, humbled by the chance to do a big job. That is what I am most proud of. I am still just me, the same guy who came here 25 years ago as a small-business man and spent all these 25 years trying to just be me."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 597, Reform Exports And Expand The American Economy Act October 26, 2015
Bill Huizenga, R-MI
"Mr. Speaker, I would like to know which committee chair of another committee would approve of having the process be short-circuited out of their committee. Would it be the Energy and Commerce Committee? the Ways and Means Committee? Because I can tell you I have not been real happy, as a small business owner on some of the lack of progress that we have made on that. Maybe it would be the Ag Committee. Why did it take so long for things to reach the floor? How about any other committee that we are all dealing with?"
