Lois Capps: for one minute. revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentlewoman is recognized. mrs. capps: madam speaker, the two most pressing issues that our constituents wanted to tackle are health care and the economy. last week i convened a number of round tables in my district with a variety of business leaders in order to discuss the economy and jobs.

Lois Capps: health care costs were, as i expected, a top concern for all of them. that's why i was proud to report that our health reform legislation will benefit them. our health reform bill will allow small business to add an estimated 80,000 new jobs because we are going to be lowering the cost of health insurance premiums. it's pretty simple.

Lois Capps: less money spent on health insurance premiums means the ability to hire new workers and salary increases for existing employees. contrast that with the other side which is to preserve the status quo. let insurans continue to rise and cause further job loss. we must exact -- enact meaningful health reform now in order to reduce health insurance
