With new commitments of support from Sens. George Voinovich (R-OH) and George LeMieux (R-FL), President Obama said “we are finally on the verge of passing a small business-jobs bill that will cut taxes and provide loans for millions of small business owners across America.”

Obama thanked Voinovich and LeMieux, saying “they understand that we simply don’t have time anymore to play games.”
