THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY'S SECURITY AGENDA -- (House of Representatives - July 27, 2006)
(Mrs. BLACKBURN asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.)
Mrs. BLACKBURN. Mr. Speaker, this Republican majority is dedicated to the security agenda. We have created a plan of action for leading that addresses the issues facing America today.
As part of our security agenda, we are promoting border security that halts illegal entry into the country. We are strengthening our national security by fighting terrorism in the Middle East where it begins, not on our own soil after an attack.
We are also promoting economic growth and job creation by lowering taxes and reducing regulation in order that families can plan for their very own secure future.
Energy security means America must harness our own domestic oil resources, expand oil refining capacity that is limited due to red tape, and at the same time carry out research and development for alternative energy sources while we focus on conservation's best practices.
We are fighting to defend the moral infrastructure that has made America great as part of our moral security agenda.
Mr. Speaker, we invite everyone to join us in a thoughtful process of securing America's future.
