BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. SCOTT of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, it is very significant that we are having this debate on Sunday, the Lord's day, because this is the day of faith, and we are going to have to step forward on faith and courage.

There are many people out here who have been warning and threatening us as to, if we vote on this bill, what will happen to us in the November elections. Well, that is not the question. The question is not what will happen to us in November. The question is, what will happen to the American people if we do not vote on this bill? That is why we have got to step out on faith, we have got to step out on courage. The American people are expecting it.

Each and every one of us was elected here for some great purpose at some great time. Well, that great purpose is for health care for all the American people, and the time is now. Vote ``yes'' for this bill and make America proud.
