POINT OF ORDER -- (House of Representatives - November 17, 2005)

Mr. ROSS. Mr. Speaker, I make a point of order.

The SPEAKER pro tempore (Mr. LaHood). The gentleman will state his point of order.

Mr. ROSS. Mr. Speaker, does the speaker not have to address you and not a group or an individual?

The SPEAKER pro tempore. The Chair would remind all Members they should address their remarks to the Chair. The gentleman may proceed.

Mr. KINGSTON. My point is that we can all live in the fantasyland of Disneyworld or the United States Capitol, and when a bill that is increasing Medicaid goes up $66 billion and people can call it a cut because they did not get their way, that it did not go up 7.3 percent, it only goes up 7 percent. You can find any excuse to vote no, and I guess in the fantasyland of Washington, D.C., you can call that a cut. But the reality is, all these posters and easels that are out in the halls of the Rayburn, the Longworth and the Cannon building are just fantasy. Here is a chance to actually reduce spending and you are barking at it and saying no.
