Rep. Mike Kelly Wants The Government To Take It’s Boot Off The Throat Of Small Businesses

Representative Mike Kelly (PA-R) gave a 5 minute pro-business speech on the floor last week that got a rousing “U.S.A.” chant from other members. Kelly starts his story with a ballpark from his hometown that couldn’t have a grand opening because the mirrors in the bathrooms were a 1/4 inch to low. Senseless government regulation was keeping 1,500 people from enjoying a ballgame, and Kelly did not like that. Kelly says, “you want to know the price of regulation? You want to talk about the thousands and thousands of pages that we put on the back of the job creators? You want to talk about creating jobs in America? When you want to see a nation that doesn’t want to participate but wants to dominate in the world market, then let them rise! Take the heavy boot off the throat of America’s job creators and let them breathe!” Kelly finished his point to a rare loud applause from the House by saying, “We are so out of touch with the American people. And you know what all this does? It adds layer after layer after layer of cost. And that cost is ultimately paid for by the American consumer. You want to have more revenues, then let the tide rise for all boats! Let us be able to not only survive, but to thrive. I urge all my colleagues, on both sides of the aisle. This is not a left or right issue. This is an American issue. I urge you to rise today and vote for HR-4078, and let’s let America get back to work! With that, I yield back.”
