PROVIDING FOR FURTHER CONSIDERATION OF H.R. 1106, HELPING FAMILIES SAVE THEIR HOMES ACT OF 2009 -- (House of Representatives - March 5, 2009)

Mr. BROUN of Georgia. I thank the gentlelady for yielding.

This rule and this bill are both blatantly unfair.

They are unfair to the working poor. They are unfair to the middle class. They are unfair to the community banks that have no blame in this housing crisis, for the most part. What it's going to do is it's going to hurt the people who have been responsible, and it's going to help those who have been irresponsible.

We have solutions. We, on our side, have offered many solutions that would stop this steamroll of socialism. This is another turn of the wheel of that steamroll of socialism that's being forced down the throats of the American people.

We have got to stop this. We have got to stop messing in people's business and hurting the people that this bill is intended to help. It's going to reward those who have been irresponsible. It's going to reward those who have been involved in greed, and it's going to hurt those people who are trying their best to have a home, to have a good value in their home.

We need to vote down this rule, we need to stop this bill. We need to stop this gross infringement on people's rights and privacy and lives that this Federal Government is doing.

We have to stop this steamroll of socialism, and I call upon my colleagues to vote down this rule and to vote down this bill.
