Mr. BUCHANAN. Madam Speaker, our economy has seen better days. Our national unemployment rate is over 9 percent, and America is borrowing $188 million every hour. We need to get serious about cutting spending and growing this economy.
We can start by enacting free trade agreements. That will create over 250,000 American jobs. Reforming the Tax Code will encourage companies to create jobs and stay in America, cutting frivolous lawsuits and scaling back needless regulation to give small business owners a chance to grow and succeed.
Finally, we must reduce the debt and balance the budget. The American people don't want more rhetoric; they want results. It is time for Congress to deliver.
