BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT
Mr. HERGER. Madam Speaker, coming from a small business background, I originally ran for public office not because of what government was doing for me, but rather what it was doing to me.
Many small business owners in my northern California district feel the same way, but apparently the President isn't getting that message. The other day he said:
If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen.
Madam Speaker, perhaps that is why he's so determined to raise taxes on small businesses on January 1. Now Senate Democrats are saying that if they can't get their small business tax hike, they'll let taxes go up for everyone. That's just wrong. Let's stop the tax hike for all Americans.
