BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. McHENRY. We have had two subcommittee hearings on capital formation. This issue was not raised. We had a subcommittee legislative hearing. This issue was not raised. We had a subcommittee markup. This issue was not raised. We had a full committee markup where we incorporated every Democrat idea into this legislation. It is outrageous for the minority party to stoop to this level of taking our important national security issues--

Through hours of debate and crafting a bipartisan bill, I thought they were better than that. I did. I thought we could get through this and pass this bill. The President announced his support. A statement of administrative policy says, Pass this bill. He says, We can't wait. And what does his party in Congress do? Offer an amendment that is already existing law. It is outrageous to play this political stunt with something so important as our national security.

I ask my colleague to withdraw this motion to recommit so we can get to final passage and get going.
