Mr. Speaker, just because it's historic doesn't mean it's good. I think we've got to be reminded of that. I think back to history for something that actually was good, and that was when Alexander Hamilton said regarding our Constitution, ``Here, sir, the people govern.''

They have said ``no'' to the budget-busting nature of this bill. And they have said ``no'' to the crippling of the economy of this bill.
