BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. WEBER of Texas. I rise to implore Congress to listen to the American public and to pass H.R. 45.

If you think the Unaffordable Care Act is a good deal, then as an American you have to ask yourself:

Do you believe the IRS acts in your best interests? My conservative guess is: not on the best days.

Ask yourself: Were all of the events swirling around Benghazi shrouded in mystery or bathed in sunlight and transparency? Not on your life.

Ask yourself: Were the phone records of the AP reporters and the privacy that should have been afforded to them protected? Not on the best days.

Ask yourself: Is the government here to help? No.

The government that is in the process of bankrupting Social Security, of bankrupting the post office and that is on the verge of killing Medicare and Medicaid now wants to come tell us, Trust us. We're from the government. We're here to help.

Madam Speaker, I don't think the American public can afford that kind of trust or help. The answers are not here in Washington, D.C. They're back with Americans. Listen to the American public.

I am Randy Weber. Let's pass H.R. 45. That's the way I see it from where I sit.
