BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. SCALISE. Madam Speaker, I want to thank the gentleman from Texas for yielding.

As American families, as Louisiana families are asking where are the jobs, and they are looking to Congress for those answers, all that they get from this tone-deaf liberal group that is running Congress today is more spending, more taxes, and just continuing with this bailout mentality. Americans are saying enough is enough.

In fact, if we want to get the economy back on track, what we need to do is go back to those principles that have been proven to work every time, and that is to cut taxes for small businesses so that the businesses that are creating jobs can go out and do what they need to do. In fact, businesses today are scared to hire anybody because of the policies coming out of Washington. So you cut taxes and you cut spending. Instead, all we see is more spending, more bailouts, and more tax increases on the backs of businesses that are going to run more jobs out of this country. It is the wrong answer. We should be here focusing on creating jobs, not running more off.
