                 PROMOTING PRIVATE-SECTOR JOB CREATION

  (Mr. BARR asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute.)
  Mr. BARR. Mr. Speaker, the Sixth District of Kentucky has had some 
good news this month. Tiffany & Co. added 75 jobs at their Lexington 
manufacturing plant. The global law firm Bingham McCutchen opened a 
Lexington global services center with plans to employ 250 workers. 
Toyota announced it will add 750 jobs and invest an additional $360 
million in their Georgetown manufacturing facility to build the Lexus.
  I am honored to represent the hardworking Kentuckians who brought 
this global recognition and investment to the Bluegrass. It is a true 
credit to our workforce that these first-class companies chose to make 
these investments in Kentucky.
  But take a moment and think about how many more jobs we could create 
without a $17 trillion national debt clogging the engines of economic 
growth. If Congress is serious about promoting private sector job 
creation, then we must remove government-imposed obstacles to growth. 
That means repealing and replacing ObamaCare, cutting spending, 
reforming our Tax Code, reducing regulations, and unleashing American 
energy. Only then will we make these headlines the norm and not the 
exception.
