                            JOBS, JOBS, JOBS

  (Mrs. CAPITO asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.)
  Mrs. CAPITO. Mr. Speaker, for West Virginia's families, it's jobs, 
health care and the economy that matters the most to them. They've seen 
trillions of dollars spent, and they see Washington proposing to spend 
trillions more. They want to know where are the jobs with the stimulus? 
They want to know why the only apparent answer here in Washington is 
more spending and more borrowing.
  My constituents want their voices heard. Recently, I sent a survey 
out and received 3,500 responses on what do people want on health care. 
They want to keep the coverage that they have. More than two-thirds are 
troubled by the idea of a government-run health care. Three-fourths are 
shocked by the thought of yet another trillion-dollar program. And the 
vast majority think that this is not the time to be raising taxes.
  Unfortunately, the plan moving through the House right now fails to 
address all of these. It fails to control costs. It taxes small 
businesses. It threatens to force families into government-run health 
care. Simply put, this is not the health care reform my constituents 
and I are looking for. What they're looking for are jobs.
