BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Madam Speaker, as we meet this afternoon, there are 15 million unemployed Americans. And no matter where you go in this country, you hear that the number one concern of our constituents is creating an environment where businesses and entrepreneurs can put people back to work.

So what is the House doing this week? Re-litigating, regurgitating, rearguing a political debate about health care again. I believe the people of this country want us to work together to get jobs back in the American economy.

The Republicans offer us a slogan, a job killing health care bill. What kills jobs is paralysis in Congress. What kills jobs is ignoring the economic problems of this country. ``No'' is not simply the right vote on the merits, it's the right vote because this is the wrong bill at the wrong time.
