                  THE PRIVATE SECTOR IS NOT DOING FINE

  (Mrs. BLACK asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute.)
  Mrs. BLACK. Madam Speaker, the President recently said that the 
private sector is doing just fine. But for millions of unemployed and 
underemployed Americans, and millions more struggling with higher food 
and energy prices, there is nothing fine about the state of the U.S. 
economy. That's why the House has passed more than a dozen bipartisan 
bills.
  This week, the House will consider the Domestic Energy and Jobs Act. 
This package of domestic energy production bills, of which I am a 
cosponsor, will not only reduce energy costs for hardworking families 
and small businesses, but it will also get government out of the way so 
that American job creators can do what they do best, that is, grow the 
economy and put people back to work.
