DEMOCRAT CONGRESS DOESN'T GET IT -- (House of Representatives - June 19, 2008)
(Mr. JORDAN of Ohio asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.)
Mr. JORDAN of Ohio. Madam Speaker, the Democrat Congress doesn't get it. We have got terrorists who want to do us harm, and we have yet to pass the FISA law. We have troops on the battlefield, and we have yet to pass the supplemental to get them the resources they need to do their job.
We have got a $10 trillion national debt, and yet the budget that was passed 3 weeks ago contains record levels of spending and the largest tax increase in history. Of course, we have got $4 a gallon gasoline and still no up or down vote on energy, expanding energy exploration.
We need to drill, we need to drill now. It's time to stop talking and start doing.
