Mrs. ROBY. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

Mr. Speaker, I rise today to stand with my colleagues in support of H.R. 2 that will repeal the Health Care Reform Act.

Sadly, this law is less about providing health care for all citizens and more about expanding Federal Government.

It translates into substantial cost, over $500 billion, that must be paid for by hardworking, tax-paying Americans. In economic hard times, it is our responsibility to ensure that this does not occur. If we do not repeal this law, our inaction will serve as nothing less than gross fiscal irresponsibility. This must not happen.

I want to tell you about the owner of the Pizza Hut in Headland, Alabama, who will be forced to close his doors due to the costs associated with this law. Then there is the gentleman who owns pharmacies throughout the Southeast, who told me he has the ability to create two jobs but who cannot do so because he doesn't know what the Federal Government is going to do to him next.

Just like our forefathers answered the call to right wrongs, we too must answer a call. The citizens in our districts have spoken, and in their words, We must repeal this law.
