Some quotes from the president from his meeting with community bankers.

Community banks "play a vital role in helping create jobs by providing approximately half of all loans to small businesses."

"Nearly half of all private sector workers are employed by small businesses."

"Community banks are the backbone of small business in America." We want to "preserve our community banks"

"Very powerful executive order" is "taking a lot of the regulation away."

"You'll be able to loan. You'll be able to be safe..You'll be able to provide the jobs that we want and also create great businesses."
