Entry Title Date
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015 July 24, 2015
Gary Peters, D-MI
"I am glad we were able to act in a bipartisan fashion to address this issue to continue to put the wind at the back of our country’s entrepreneurs. We must make sure small businesses continue to receive the resources they need to survive, to compete, and to succeed."
Perez Nomination July 18, 2013
Lamar Alexander, R-TN
"In short, it seems to me that Mr. Perez did not discharge the duty he owed to the government to try to collect money owed to taxpayers. He did not discharge the duty to protect the whistleblowers, who were left hanging in the wind. At the same time, he was manipulating the legal process to remove a case from the Supreme Court in a way that is inappropriate for the Assistant Attorney General of the United States."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3581, Budget And Accounting Transparency Act Of 2012 February 7, 2012
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume to end where I began, and that is in agreement with my colleague. He says we should be the wind at the back of small business. Nothing could be truer. Nothing could be more true."
