Virginia Foxx: speaker. i again constantly find it amazing how our colleagues want to rewrite history and they assume that nobody's going to check up on what they are saying. that's not happening these days. i wanted to remind my colleagues

Virginia Foxx: that when the democrats took over the congress in january, 2007, president bush was still in office, the deficit was less than $400 billion. since president obama's inauguration, the u.s. has had

Virginia Foxx: higher credit. there is a real antipathy towards marry couples in our policies that our democratic colleagues continue to pass. again they are always picking winners and losers instead of allowing the american people to do with their money what they would like to do. and my colleagues talk out these rich people all the time.

Virginia Foxx

1:28:19 to 1:28:35( Edit History Discussion )

Virginia Foxx: it appears that they simply never want to see another rich person in this country. they have such antipathy for the rich. what republicans want is for every member, every american to be able to be rich. why is that not a wonderful goal
