Ms. STABENOW. Mr. President, I know there is a point of order against this amendment, but despite the intent, which I appreciate and agree with, of protecting taxpayer dollars, unfortunately, the way this is designed, it would actually put taxpayer dollars at risk by creating an end deadline so that we would have all of the taxpayers' interests coming up at the same time. It would lower the value. It would put the companies at risk of a takeover, which I don't believe my colleague or anyone in this body would want.

It is incredibly important that we not try to intervene with end dates that are, in a way, going to backfire in terms of putting taxpayer investment in these companies at risk.
