    Ethan's Law

    Mr. Speaker, I do not support this legislation without the changes. I yield.

    Ethan's Law

    Mr. Speaker, If the gentleman would also stoke section (i), we'd accept. I yield.

    Ethan's Law

    Mr. Speaker, I will gladly answer the gentleman's question. That would be this section, Specifically, clause iii, in which the firearm is forfeited. That is a gross overreach, and infringes on second amendment rights. If we could strike this section, I think we'd have an agreeable bill. I yield.

    Ethan's Law

    Mr. Speaker, While this bill has good intentions, I feel as if it is a gross overreach of government power. I will object against any motions for UC and will vote against this bill. I yield.
  5. Mr. Speaker, I object. I yield.
  6. Mr. Speaker, I also support the motion for UC. I yield.
  7. Mr. Speaker, I also call for UC. I yield.
  8. Mr. Speaker, As there is sufficient evidence to believe that the Government of Pakistan is supporting the Haqqani network, I believe this bill is necessary. Until Pakistan can show it's taking concrete steps against the Haqqani network, I do no feel we should have a close military relationship with Pakistan at this time. I echo the gentleman's motion for UC. I yield.

    Good to know the spirit of bipartisanship is alive. And he called me an obstructionist.

    Major Grant thinks the government should know if you own a handgun. In the words of Pres. Reagan, "The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help."
  11. Mr. Speaker, I think $528 million is a good start for the federally qualified health centers. I yield.
  12. Mr. Speaker, But again I say this bill would not be legal. You'd have to repeal the Firearms Owners Protection Act. I yield.

    Traveled to Kansas today to tour the disaster area. Kansas has strong people, and I know they will come out on top. Read my remarks here.
  14. Vice President Sharp met with relief workers in Kansas today. Here are his remarks. It's good to be here today and meet with the fine men and women who are assisting with the cleanup after this terrible disaster. Thanks to the President's disaster deceleration, everyone here has been able to get to work immediately with the cleanup and recovery. The President and I are 100% behind you folks and we are willing to offer whatever assistance the Federal Government can. I want to take a moment to reflect on the 32 lives that were lost and 200 injured people who are recovering right now. You know, as I toured the area today, I met with many strong Kansans who have seen this happen before, and they refuse to let it affect them. We've had folks our here helping their neighbors in need, and that what this is all about. Coming together in times of despair to help each other. That is the American way. In addition to what the President and I have been able to do, we've seen many charities such as the Red Cross coming to assist the good people of Kansas. I know every American has you in their thoughts and prayers, and thousands of Americans have been sending help from all across the country. And when I come here and see neighbors coming together to help neighbors, I stand proud. The motto of this great state is, "Per aspera ad astra," which means, "through hardships to the stars." I think the folks here today know a little about that, because through these hardships, the sky is the limit, and this town, and the many towns around it will soon be back on top. Thank you, and may God bless you all. Let's get back to work!

    Never said that, but with the way the Senate Democrats are trying to push this bill through, you think it would help them immediately.

    @GeorgePSmith

    We can do both, but the bill in the Senate isn't going to help Seniors in need now. It'll be a committee that does years of research and gives the Federal Government ideas on how to help Seniors.

    @GeorgePSmith

    While Democrats in the Senate cry over not being able to get an advisory committee that will ultimately do nothing for Senior Citizens, my Senior Citizens Tax Elimination Act I've just introduced will lessen the tax burden on our Senior Citizens and is something that will actually help them.
