TAKE A SERIOUS LOOK -- (House of Representatives - March 31, 2009)
(Mr. ROONEY asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.)
Mr. ROONEY. Mr. Speaker, we've all heard about the out-of-control spending, the borrowing, the increase in taxes, the bailouts, the AIG bonuses, the stock market drop, the job losses, more foreclosures, government-run health care, increased gas prices, the credit crisis, more jobs lost, the President firing the CEO of General Motors, and more jobs lost--and this only in the first 2 months of this Congress.
Now we face a budget this week that will increase taxes, increase spending, increase borrowing more than ever before in the history of this country. We are also poised to make serious cuts in military spending in uncertain times.
We need to take a serious look in the eyes of our children and ask ourselves if they deserve the future we are giving them.
