CONGRESSMEN TOOK SMALL BUSINESS LOANS

Members of Congress took small-business loans — and the full extent is unknown

At least four members of Congress have reaped benefits in some way from the half-trillion-dollar small-business loan program they helped create.

“This is the largest distributor of taxpayer money in human history, and we need to ensure taxpayers know where it’s going,” Rep. Dean Phillips said in an interview.

And no one knows how many more there could be.

It’s a bipartisan group of lawmakers who have acknowledged close ties to companies that have received loans from the program.

Businesses that are either run by their families or employ their spouse as a senior executive.

Republicans on the list include Rep. Roger Williams of Texas, a wealthy businessman who owns auto dealerships, body shops and car washes.

Also Rep. Vicky Hartzler of Missouri, whose family owns multiple farms and equipment suppliers across the Midwest.

The Democrats count Rep. Susie Lee of Nevada, whose husband is CEO of a regional casino developer.

In addition was Rep. Debbie Mucarsel Powell of Florida, whose husband is a senior executive at a restaurant chain that has since returned the loan.

DAWG SAYS: THAT IS WHY PROFESSIONAL POLITICIANS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED.

THEIR SPOUSES BUSINESS’S GET SPECIAL TREATMENT OR THEY ARE HIRED BY OTHER BUSINESS’S TO GET THE INSIDE TRACK ON THINGS.

I ALWAYS SAY IT IS NOT JUST DOING THE RIGHT THINGS THEY MUST HAVE THE APPEARANCE OF DOING THE RIGHT THINGS.

RIGHT NOW THEY DO NOT APPEAR TO DOING THE RIGHT THINGS AT ALL.

  1. May I presume you are not targeting “Queen” Maxine Waters who secured a loan to her husbands bank while she was on the House Banking Committee many years ago and has never been repaid? She denies it, but the records are still there unlike Hillary’s E-Mails.
