                 CUT, CAP, AND BALANCE DEAD ON ARRIVAL

  (Ms. LORETTA SANCHEZ of California asked and was given permission to 
address the House for 1 minute.)
  Ms. LORETTA SANCHEZ of California. Mr. Speaker, last night we voted 
once again in the House of Representatives to cut Medicare, to cut 
Social Security, and to reward the wealthiest 2 percent of our Nation 
with tax cuts, and of course big business with tax cuts. The Republican 
majority wasted a crucial day of debate instead of protecting and 
working on the financial security for our Nation.
  We could have debated a strong jobs agenda like the Make It in 
America agenda that the Democrats have. We could have discussed how we 
could strengthen partnerships with businesses to retain America's 
workers for the jobs that are actually needed here.
  But what did they do? As one former Republican budget adviser calls 
it, they debated something that was ``a misleading political cheap 
shot.''
  The Republicans Cut, Cap, and Balance Act is harmful for this 
country, and it is not a serious proposal. It is not going to be signed 
into law. They wasted our time. So I am glad that that bill is dead on 
arrival in the Senate. But I really wish, I really wish they would get 
down to working for America.
