Read The Bill
Mr. SCALISE. On the heels of the failed stimulus bill that added another roughly $1 trillion of debt to our Nation's debt, also leading to about another two million people losing their jobs in this country and then that cap-and-trade energy tax proposal that literally would run millions of jobs out of our country, most Americans across our Nation are saying, Where are the jobs?
And, instead, the latest proposal by President Obama and Speaker Pelosi is this attempt to mandate a government takeover of our health care system.
And, you know, the President goes out and he gives these speeches. And he says under his plan if you like the plan that you have, you can keep it. Well, unfortunately, I don't think the President has read his bill because if you look right here in section 102 of the bill, it says that the government health care czar is going to be able to take away your health care plan even if you like it. It's right here in the bill.
Another part, Mr. Speaker, of what the President says is anybody who makes under $250,000 a year won't pay anymore in new taxes. Once again, maybe the President hasn't read his own bill, but in his health care bill right here in section 401, tax on individuals without acceptable health care, $29 billion in new taxes.
