Thank you, M. Speaker.
America was united in its disgust at the spectacle in Washington during the debt ceiling fiasco.
The Republican threat to force a default ranks among the most reckless and destructive political stunts in modern American history.
M. Speaker, I rise today in strong support of this bill which will keep people working building our infrastructure.
Failure to pass this bill would put politics first and mean unnecessary economic pain for millions of Americans.
I commend the majority for putting America first by bringing this bill up quickly and without any policy riders.
M. Speaker, I rise today to talk about jobs.
I am not alone – everyone here TALKS about jobs.
One side offers solutions to create jobs and the other side stands in the way, blaming the President.
It’s been more than 250 days since the Republicans took control of the House, and they have failed to pass a single bill to address the jobs crisis.
Good morning – it’s good to be with all of you here in Stone Mountain for such an important commemoration. Thank you to Mayor Wheeler, members of the city council, elected officials and the organizers Jack Sartain, Dr. George Coletti and Bugles Across America.
According to the latest figures available, an estimated 43.5 million Americans are living in poverty.
Ladies and gentlemen, that’s more than the entire population of California!

Good morning, it’s great to be here this morning to honor our Veterans – especially our Vietnam Veterans, who for too long were not treated with the dignity and respect they deserved.
