“We are the job machine,” said Greenblatt, who owns the Marlin Steel Wire Products custom hook and basket company in Baltimore. “And we’re going to get us out of the recession.”

Greenblatt, who testified on behalf of the NAM before the House Small Business Committee on tax code reform, also said Congress shouldn’t let Bush tax cuts expire because small businesses need them. To read Greenblatt’s testimony in full go here.

And Drew, a master at getting publicity for his small company, didn’t miss the opportunity to show off his product line. He bought a metal hook and wire basket to show Committee Chairwoman Rep. Nydia Velazquez (D-NY) and other lawmakers.
