Paulsen Proves a One-Minute Speech Can Be Boring

Video here

Mr. Speaker, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Three months ago, Congress rushed to spend 350 billion dollars of taxpayer dollars [sic] without adequate hearings and deliberation. The result was a lack of transparency and accountability, disappointment in how the massive funds were spent and a bloated federal budget deficit. But here we go again. This Congress is now proposing to do the exact same thing. Well another $350 billion bailout is not the answer my constituents are looking for. The people in my district in Minnesota are struggling to make ends meet, and they’re worried about the future. We must take concrete steps to jumpstart our economy and put people back to work. It’s time to stop exposing taxpayers to any more undue risk and saddling them with unnecessary debt. Mr. Speaker, Congress should reject another $350 billion bailout and instead focus on preserving, protecting and creating jobs to get our economy going again.
