Congresswoman Virginia Foxx addresses the President's remarks that "If you've got a business -- you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."
An excerpt below:
Mr. Speaker, Washington didn't buy the American dream for the millions of small businesses that comprise the backbone of our economy. Nor did Washington show up sick when a shift needed to be covered, miss soccer games because a shipment had to be received, or work graveyard because someone had to do it.
Americans did that.
Too quickly we forget that everything the government has it takes from taxpayers. And if taxpayers do poorly, so does the government.
So Washington must remain mindful. If the policies it imposes make it harder for small businesses to grow and create jobs, and eliminate their ability to invest, it is Washington that will find itself in crisis as it is now.
