BEING BITTER AND ANGRY -- (House of Representatives - October 26, 2005)
(Mr. KINGSTON asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
Mr. KINGSTON. Mr. Speaker, ``Together We Can Do Better.'' That is the new motto of the Democrat Party. Well, you can judge the future by their past, and let us see how they did in the past.
Social Security, take an issue. What was their solution? Still waiting. No solution. Hello Democrat Party, put it on the board. You did not like our solution? What is your better solution?
Taxes? You do not like tax cuts. The government knows how to spend your money better than you do. And when tax revenues went up $94 billion because of our tax cuts creating new jobs, what did the Democrats have to say? We just do not like tax cuts.
Fiscal responsibility. Now they have a chance. We know in the Committee on Appropriations they have offered $61 billion in spending increases in the last 3 years. Now is their chance to show ``we did not mean it.'' They can do better.
9/11, what was their response? Whining and pining and hand-wringing, saying, Why do they hate us? That is what we must find out.
Iraq, well, let us turn Iraq over to Cindy Sheehan. She should run our foreign policy.
Together we can do better? I think they ought to look at ``together we can be bitter, bitter and angry.''
