House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) applauded the House for passing two more bipartisan jobs bills tonight: the Access to Capital for Job Creators Act (H.R. 2940), introduced by Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and the Entrepreneur Access to Capital Act (H.R. 2930), introduced by Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC). Boehner released the following statement:
“The House has now passed more than 20 bipartisan jobs bills so far this year. The bills approved tonight will make it easier for small businesses and start-ups to access the resources they need to expand and hire new workers, and will foster a better environment for private-sector job creation and long-term economic growth. I want to thank Majority Whip McCarthy and Congressman McHenry for their work on these common-sense measures.
“I urge President Obama to call on the Democrat-controlled Senate to quickly vote on these and the rest of the House-passed jobs bills still awaiting action. We don’t need more ‘stimulus’ spending, higher taxes, or more unnecessary regulations – we need to get Washington out of the way and remove government obstacles to job growth. That’s what these bipartisan jobs bills do, and they deserve an immediate vote by Senate Democrats.”
