BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. PALMER. Mr. Speaker, there was a comment about this is about
governing. It really is. It is about governing constitutionally. We are
no longer three separate but equal branches of government. The abuse of
the executive order has diminished Congress, and the abuse of the
Senate rules has diminished this House. We are now reduced to passing
what the Senate will allow us to pass, and the Senate is reduced to
passing what the President will not veto.

This is about the Constitution. We have 3 more days in which we can
consider legislation that upholds the rule of law and that restores the
balance of powers. We should take those 3 days.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is a day that we will remember for the
rest of our lives. The country is looking to us right now to make a
decision whether or not we will uphold our oath of office. I call upon
every Member of this House to be an oath keeper.
