                          WHERE ARE THE JOBS?

  (Mr. McKEON asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. McKEON. Mr. Speaker, my friends are asking, Where are the jobs? 
It's a good question because we were told in February, when the 
stimulus package was passed, that four or five million jobs would be 
created. Since then we've lost 1,963,000 jobs.
  It's not bad enough that we're not doing anything to create jobs from 
the administration's side. But we're actually doing things to kill more 
jobs.
  I just left a markup for the Education Committee where the majority 
is killing a program that has been very successful since 1965, has 
helped millions of students go to college and provided an education for 
them, and now they're eliminating that program, along with it, 40,000 
jobs.
  I have constituents at home that are really suffering. They're 
asking, Where are the jobs? It's about time you started doing something 
to produce them.
