           EXPRESSING FRUSTRATION WITH WASHINGTON POLITICIANS

  (Mr. JOHNSON of Ohio asked and was given permission to address the 
House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. JOHNSON of Ohio. Madam Speaker, last week we witnessed shocking, 
shocking hypocrisy from President Obama. His Justice Department filed a 
lawsuit, a frivolous lawsuit, to block the State of Alabama from 
enforcing a law that would keep illegal immigrants from taking American 
jobs.
  In the lawsuit, Mr. Obama's lawyers claimed that the law would expose 
those whom authorities suspect might be here illegally from ``new 
difficulties in routine dealings.'' Now, keep in mind that this is the 
same Obama administration that is strangling small businesses with job-
killing regulations, and because of Barack Obama, virtually every small 
business in America is now facing ``new difficulties in routine 
dealings.''
  The people I represent are beyond frustrated with Washington 
politicians, who are slow to protect America's businesses, yet who are 
quick to sue over a law that would help American citizens get jobs. 
Americans have given up on their leadership, so here is a message for 
President Obama:
  Stop targeting small businesses, and let these job creators get back 
to doing what they do best--creating jobs.


                Announcement by the Speaker Pro Tempore

  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The Chair would remind all Members to 
refrain from engaging in personalities toward the President.
