End Government Interference

Floor Speech

Mr. KINGSTON. Mr. Speaker, recently the government came out with a 106-page regulatory and safety reform plan for ceiling fans. I did not know ceiling fans were such a hazard to America's health, but apparently they are.

So what's going to happen? That $40 ceiling fan that you've been buying and putting on your back porch will now go to $400 because we have to keep these busybody bureaucrats employed. We have to keep them happy because of these hazardous fans.

Now, my friend, Joe "Cut Spending'' McCutchen was recently talking to me about the big problem that is too much government, too much spending and interference in our lives. That's why today I supported the Ryan budget and yesterday the Republican Study Committee budget.

These budgets call for tax reform, for health care reform, for less spending and regulatory reform of job-killing regulations like the new 106-page document on ceiling fans.

Let's hope the Senate passes a tough budget. But if they do not, with or without that, let's continue to work on spending cuts, reducing the size of government and ending government interference in our lives.
