Virginia Foxx: and my friends on the other s of the aisle earlier this evening talked about the lack of solutions that we have. so i'm pleased to yield to my friend from north carolina for her comments on energy or whatever else you'd like to chat about this evening. ms. foxx: i thank you, dr. price, for beginning this hour and bringing an extraordinarily

Speech By: Virginia Foxx

Virginia Foxx

3:22:21 to 3:22:41( Edit History Discussion )

Virginia Foxx: comprehensive discussion to the health care issue. i did hear more of our colleagues that were here previous hour talking about energy than health care but i did hear them say that if we were to adopt the health care proposals and i assume that they mean h.r. 3200, that that would

Virginia Foxx

3:22:42 to 3:23:04( Edit History Discussion )

Virginia Foxx: bring long-term economic growth to this country. and i thought that i must be living in either never-neverland or wonderland or some place other than in the united states of america and serving in the united states congress. because having the government

Virginia Foxx

3:23:05 to 3:23:28( Edit History Discussion )

Virginia Foxx: take over health care in this country is a formula in my opinion for harming economic growth in this country, not creating economic growth. and i think that the american people have caught on to that. i want to say that the thing that kept running through my mind as i was listening to that,

Virginia Foxx

3:23:29 to 3:23:50( Edit History Discussion )

Virginia Foxx: and let me say here that many folks wonder why we often are here speaking to an empty chamber, but we're usually in our offices listening to what's going on in the chamber, along with about 800,000 other people in the country and so we do listen to each other and sometimes it is very frustrating

Virginia Foxx

3:23:51 to 3:24:12( Edit History Discussion )

Virginia Foxx: to hear what's being said because i believe, in many cases, the merge people are being misled -- the american people are being misled by the comments that are being said. we don't expect to see long-term economic growth from health care and one of the best things i think that has happened this entire summer is that the

Virginia Foxx

3:24:13 to 3:24:33( Edit History Discussion )

Virginia Foxx: american people have been paying closer attention to what's being proposed in the congress. the h.r. 3200 has been looked at by the public and they understa that what we have been saying about the bill is more accurate than what our colleagues have been saying

Virginia Foxx

3:24:34 to 3:24:55( Edit History Discussion )

Virginia Foxx: about the bill. i have read the bill, i know you have read the bill, and i want to encourage more and more americans to read it because i don't think that the time has passed for us considering that bill. i think that or something similar to it is going to be dealt with on the floor of the

Virginia Foxx

3:24:56 to 3:25:16( Edit History Discussion )

Virginia Foxx: house. but what i wish is that more americans had paid closer attention to the bill thatur colleagues call cap and trade and which we call cap and tax. because i think if the american people had paid as much attention to that as they have to the health care bill they would have been up in arms earlier this year.

Virginia Foxx

3:25:17 to 3:25:38( Edit History Discussion )

Virginia Foxx: most of them don't realize that, again, what our colleagues were saying is just the opposite of what they do in legislation. last summer we were here talking about the problems with energy, gas prices were skyrocketing and as you pointed out we stood for an all-of-the-above energy

Virginia Foxx

3:25:39 to 3:25:59( Edit History Discussion )

Virginia Foxx: policy in this country. resources that are available to us in this country. i believe the good lord gave us the resources in this country to take care of our energy needs. but our colleagues on the other side of the aisle, and let's say it, the democ of this congress, it's very important that people understand

Virginia Foxx

3:26:00 to 3:26:20( Edit History Discussion )

Virginia Foxx: that our colleagues who were speaking a while ago were speaking of the folks in charge who are of their party. they make it seem like they're not in control, that they can't make the things happen that they're talking about, but they are in control. and every day they make us more and more dependent on that

Virginia Foxx

3:26:21 to 3:26:40( Edit History Discussion )

Virginia Foxx: foreign oil that they say they don't want us to be dependent on. we have seen here how they have shut down accessibility to shale and oil and the outer continental shelf. over and over and over again they stymie every opportunity
