Mr Speaker,

I feel that this bill speaks for itself, at present the United States of America does not have a navy, we have no way to defend our coastline from piracy, in short we are completely unprepared for any kind of naval task that may befall the Government. This bill will very simply provide for funding to build our nation a navy taking advantage of the soon to be in surplus budget to fund it and still continue to pay down our debts.

I yield.
