|00:00:00||NOW, IN THE LAWSUIT, MR.|
|00:00:02||OBAMA'S LAWYERS CLAIMED THAT THE LAW WOULD EXPOS THOSE -- EXPOSE THOSE WHO MIGHT BE HERE ILLEGALLY FROM, I QUOTE, NEW DIFFICULTIES IN THE ROUTINE DEALINGS.|
|00:00:14||NOW, KEEP IN MIND THIS IS THE SAME OBAMA ADMINISTRATION THAT IS STRANGLING SMALL BUSINESSES WITH JOB-KILLING REGULATIONS AND BECAUSE OF BARACK OBAMA, VIRTUALLY EVERY SMALL BUSINESS IN AMERICA IS NOW FACING NEW DIFFICULTIES WITH ROUTINE DEALINGS.|
|00:00:30||THE PEOPLE I REPRESENT ARE BEYOND FRUSTRATED WITH WASHINGTON POLITICIANS THAT ARE SLOW TO PROTECT AMERICA'S BUSINESSES YET QUICK TO SUE OVER A LAW THAT WOULD HELP AMERICAN CITIZENS GET JOBS.|
|00:00:43||AMERICANS HAVE GIVEN UP ON THEIR LEADERSHIP.|
|00:00:45||SO HERE'S THE MESSAGE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA.|
|00:00:50||STOP TARGETING SMALL BUSINESSES AND LET THESE JOB CREATORS GET BACK TO WHAT THEY DO BEST, CREATE JOBS.|
Mr. JOHNSON of Ohio. Madam Speaker, last week we witnessed shocking, shocking hypocrisy from President Obama. His Justice Department filed a lawsuit, a frivolous lawsuit, to block the State of Alabama from enforcing a law that would keep illegal immigrants from taking American jobs.
In the lawsuit, Mr. Obama's lawyers claimed that the law would expose those whom authorities suspect might be here illegally from ``new difficulties in routine dealings.'' Now, keep in mind that this is the same Obama administration that is strangling small businesses with job-killing regulations, and because of Barack Obama, virtually every small business in America is now facing ``new difficulties in routine dealings.'' The people I represent are beyond frustrated with Washington politicians, who are slow to protect America's businesses, yet who are quick to sue over a law that would help American citizens get jobs. Americans have given up on their leadership, so here is a message for President Obama: Stop targeting small businesses, and let these job creators get back to doing what they do best--creating jobs.
