BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. ANDREWS. I thank the chairman for yielding.

My friend from Arizona said a few minutes ago, we're in the crazy season. I think on this issue we've been in the crazy season for about two decades. I think when we have a policy that says if the other side doesn't follow the rules, you just ignore it, I think that's crazy. If you have a policy that says if the Chinese manipulate their currency and make it easy to fill the shelves at Wal-Mart but empty the pockets of American workers and you ignore it, I think that's crazy.

So I think the process of going forward when the other side doesn't play by the same rules that we do, that empties factories, empties wallets and empties communities in this country, I think ignoring that is crazy. And I am glad to see that this House on a bipartisan basis for the first time in a long time is saying it's time to stand up for American communities, American companies and American workers and vote ``yes'' on this legislation.
