American Research And Competitiveness Act Of 2015 May 20, 2015
Mike Thompson, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, I just want to point out that small businesses and the startups are disadvantaged if this bill passes. They can’t take advantage of this real-world experience and business-world experience. I am here to tell you, as a small-business person, if you don’t pay your bills, you go out of business. The leader had mentioned that this bill is going to cost $181 billion, but, Mr. Speaker and Members, if you add that $181 billion to everything else that the majority has passed in regard to unpaid-for tax cuts, that number jumps to $586.3 billion of unpaid-for tax policy."
