H. Res. 355, Rule for Consideration of H.R. 2560

July 19, 2011

Jan 27, 2009

M. Speaker. By direction of the Committee on Rules I call up House Resolution 53 and ask for its immediate consideration.

For the purpose of debate only, I yield the customary 30 minutes to the gentleman from California, Mr. Dreier. All time yielded during consideration of the rule is for debate only. I yield myself such time as I may consume. I also ask unanimous consent that all Members be given five legislative days in which to revise and extend their remarks on House Resolution 53.

Madam Speaker, yesterday morning, a woman in my district shouted at me, -Tell all those guys on Wall Street to- - how should I put this - -Take a long walk off a short pier.-

I can appreciate how she feels. I kind of feel the same way.

I want someone to pay a price - or to at least assume responsibility - for this economic mess before we do anything else. But while that might be good therapy, it's not good economic policy.

On Monday, I voted in support of H.R. 3997, the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act.

This was a difficult vote. Like my constituents, I am angry at the people who got us into this mess -- greedy Wall Street fat cats and the anything-goes, no-regulation, -Cowboy Capitalism- Bush Administration.
