              IN SUPPORT OF THE PRESIDENT'S ECONOMIC PLAN

  (Mrs. MILLER of Michigan asked and was given permission to address 
the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.)
  Mrs. MILLER of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, I speak out today in support of 
the President's economic plan. This plan is about three things: number 
one, jobs; number two, jobs; number three, jobs.
  If you do not have a job and you want a job, the President's plan is 
for you. If you do have a job and you want a better job, the 
President's plan is for you.
  Some have said that this plan is only for the rich because it will 
eliminate double taxation on dividends. They say that because they are 
stuck in an economic time warp and they refuse to understand the 
economic realities of today. Double taxation is un-American, and our 
seniors need this tax break so that that their retirement income can 
provide them with security and stability.
  The President's plan provides an economic stimulus for every 
American. It enacts tax policy that is pro-growth, pro-opportunity, 
and, most importantly, pro-family, and I am talking about the American 
family, every single one of them.
  I urge my colleagues not to give in to the hand-wringers and to 
support this bold plan for America's future.
