Mrs. CAPITO. I want to thank the chairman. I really want to thank the whole Financial Services Committee for working together on this bill, the JOBS bill, Jumpstart Our Business Startups.
Our unemployment in this country is over 8 percent. We've got to find and make every means available to create jobs and to give those great ideas to be able to grow from small businesses to large businesses. We want to make sure that our entrepreneurs are able to find the funding to be able to grow those seeds of a business that then could flourish and grow.
When we talk about some of the things that have started in this country as start-ups most recently, we might look at something like AOL or something like Apple or even FedEx when Fred Smith wrote that famous paper in business school that I think didn't get a very good grade but now has resulted in our FedEx. If they hadn't been able to find the funding to begin, many of them I think today would say that because of the regulatory structure, because of the inability to find funding, that they wouldn't even be able to get started today and grow to the thousands of jobs that they have.
This has great potential. It's bipartisan. I support the JOBS Act.
