Merkley on Maddow: Overcoming Obstruction to Create Jobs

Senator Merkley talks with Rachel Maddow about how the Small Business Lending Fund can create jobs if the Senate can move it forward.

“This is a program to help out banks on Main Street make loans to small businesses. We hear from small businesses in every single state that they are constrained by their access to credit. They need that credit to seize opportunities, to grow, to take us out of this recession, and most importantly to create jobs.”
