BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. CARTER. Mr. Speaker, I am delighted to find that the President has finally found common ground with the conservatives. The President wrote in The Wall Street Journal yesterday that he issued an executive order calling for all agencies to identify job-killing and costly red tape that could be eliminated. We should help him resolve this by eliminating thousands of new regulations that will be dumped on individuals and businesses over the next 4 years by this bad health care law. The Federal Register contains 6,123 pages of requirements for the new health care rules created by this law.

The Center for Health Transformation lists 159 new Federal agencies created by this law.

We can replace this bad bill with bipartisan reforms that can let the people both keep their job and their health insurance.

Mr. Speaker, let's support the President's initiative and reduce bad regulations by repealing this bad law.
