Hi, everybody.
Nearly six years after the worst financial crisis
of our lifetimes, our businesses have
added nearly 10 million new jobs over the past 53 months.
That's the longest streak of private-sector
job creation in our history.
And we're in a six-month streak with our economy
creating at least 200,000 new jobs each month --
the first time that's happened since 1997.
Thanks to the decisions we made to rescue
and rebuild our economy, and your hard work and resilience,
America is leading again.
Areas like manufacturing, energy, technology,
and autos are all booming.
And here's the thing: we're selling more goods
Made in America to the rest of the world
than ever before.
American exports are at an all-time high.
Over the past five years, we've worked hard
to open new markets for our businesses,
and to help them compete on a level playing field
in those markets.
And we've broken records for exports
four years running.
Last year, our exports supported more than
11 million American jobs - about 1.6 million
more than when I took office.
They're good jobs that typically
pay about 15% more than the national average.
And more small businesses are selling their goods
abroad than ever before -- nearly
300,000 last year alone.
We should be doing everything
we can to accelerate this progress, not stall it.
One place to start is by supporting
something called
the U.S. Export-Import Bank.
Its sole mission is to create American jobs.
That's it.
It helps many American entrepreneurs take that
next step and take their small business global.
But next month, its charter will expire --
unless Members of Congress do their
job and reauthorize it.
Now, past Congresses have done this 16 times,
always with support from both parties.
Republican and Democratic Presidents
have supported the bank, too.
This time around shouldn't be any different.
Because the bank works.
It's independent.
It pays for itself.
But if Congress fails to act, thousands
of businesses, large and small,
that sell their products abroad will take
a completely unnecessary hit.
Small business owners have had to overcome
a lot these past several years.
We all saw local businesses close their
doors during the crisis.
And in the past few years, we've seen more
and more open their doors and do their part to help
lead America's comeback.
At the very least, they deserve a Congress
that doesn't stand in the way of their success.
Your members of Congress are home this month.
If you're a small business owner or employee
of a large business that depends on financing
to tackle new markets and create new jobs,
tell them to quit treating your business
like it's expendable, and start treating
it for what it is: vital to America's success.
Tell them to do their jobs -- keep America's
exports growing, and keep America's recovery going.
Thanks, and have a great weekend.
