BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. CORKER. I thank the leaders for their excellent work and the people who joined them. I think the policy has been debated well. I do wish to say, at the beginning there was discussion that there be a 60-vote threshold at the end and that some of the amendments might improve the funding aspect. I still want to say one more time that a vote for this bill is a vote to increase our deficit this year by $11 billion and a vote to violate the Budget Control Act that we just passed last year.

I appreciate the work. I do wish we had worked to pay for this. We have not done that. I would like to remind everyone voting for this that we are, in fact, adding $11 billion to our deficit, more so than was laid out by the Budget Control Act.
