Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mrs. ADAMS. I thank you, and I would again ask my colleagues on the other side of the aisle to quit making politics with an issue so near and dear to all of us.

We are above what the President put in. Just like the chairman said, we have constantly been above what the President has asked for. And you, as well as I, know that this has become a political issue when it should never have been a political issue. We can no longer allow politics to take control over good policy. We can no longer allow misrepresentation about amounts and this and that over good policy.

We have a bill coming to the floor. We know that we need to address this issue, and it has been addressed even more than the administration has asked for. So with that, I would ask that you do not--do not--approve this motion to recommit.
