Mr. BROUN of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, God tells us in Josiah 4:6, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Mr. Speaker, the American citizens need to know that the Pelosi health mandate bill that we are going to be voting on evidently Saturday night is going to destroy our economy. It is going to destroy jobs. In fact, the President's own economic adviser says 5.5 million people will lose their jobs if this bill becomes law.
Mr. Speaker, the American people need to read the bill and need to know what is in it. It is being forced down the throats of the American people. Mr. Speaker, this is a dead, rotten, stinking fish that the Speaker is trying to force down the throats of the American people before they have an opportunity to see it. I encourage the American people to know what is going on here and to tell their Congressman that they reject the insurance mandate that is proposed by the Speaker in the Speaker's health insurance mandate bill.
