BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. KIND. Mr. Speaker, I will never forget the pride I felt as a 6-year-old kid in Wisconsin watching Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walk on the moon. It was a deep and abiding belief that I live in a country that's capable of accomplishing anything once we put our mind to it. That belief is being tested throughout America today.

People are wondering if we're still capable of doing great things. I believe we can, and I want my two boys to feel the same way. I believe our country, by working together, can ensure that all Americans have access to quality, affordable, and secure health care, regardless if they're young or old, whether they're rich or poor, and even whether they have a preexisting condition. And we can do this in a fiscally responsible manner by paying for this bill and finding savings that will reduce the deficit in future years.
