BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

There are 15 million Americans unemployed as we meet this morning. They do not want us to play politics with health care; they want us to work together to create jobs.

There is a job killer loose in America. The job killer is unfair trade practices that force the outsourcing of our jobs.

There is a proposal that has broad agreement between Republicans and Democrats to bring fair trade back to America. If we defeat the previous question, we will move to amend the rule to make in order the Currency Reform for Fair Trade Act, which simply says this: As the Chinese have been slamming the door shut on our workers and products, we've been opening our shelves in American department stores. No more of that. No more outsourcing of jobs. No more unfair trade practices. A fair and level playing field for American workers.

Let's work together to create jobs and stop the politics and the waste of time of health care. Vote ``no'' on the previous question.
