Linda McMahon Confirmed For SBA, John Cena Shows Off Range Rover, Owens/Goldberg

Warren Dawson | 16 February, 2017, 01:17

The Senate on Tuesday confirmed former WWE chief executive Linda McMahon as the head of the Small Business Administration. Her real world experience will be incredibly valuable as she serves our nation by leading the Small Business Administration.

McMahon also had the support of two Democratic senators from CT who defeated her in two general elections - Richard Blumenthal in 2010 and Chris Murphy in 2012. We started out sharing a desk.

In making the nomination, the president said McMahon shared "his vision of decreasing burdensome regulations that are hurting our middle-class workers and small businesses". "I know what it's like to take a hit".

"Small businesses are the engine of our national economy", McMahon said upon her confirmation.

Dubai, which already has a driverless metro system, is trying to meet a lofty goal of alleviating congestion in the city. The drone is essentially a one-person pod that has eight rotors located on four arms, this gives it the name 184.

"I believe in leadership by example".

Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy - who each defeated McMahon when she ran for the U.S. Senate - introduced the nominee at her confirmation hearing last month, helping to quell concerns among Democrats about the WWE's hiring practices and use of contract workers who are not covered by health insurance.

In recent years, she has worked with programs encouraging start-up businesses, particularly among women. She and her husband, Vince, have two adult children and six grandchildren. A possible confirmation on Monday would make him the lone Obama-administration official serving in the Trump cabinet.

"Linda McMahon was born in North Carolina and worked for decades to grow a small business into a thriving entertainment enterprise; she exemplifies the America dream". Through an extensive network of field offices and partnerships with public and private organizations, the SBA delivers its services to people throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam.
