Tim Walberg, R-MI 7th

Mr. WALBERG. Mr. Chairman, I have an amendment at the desk.

The Acting CHAIR. The Clerk will designate the amendment.

The text of the amendment is as follows:

Strike section 12312.

The Acting CHAIR. Pursuant to House Resolution 271, the gentleman from Michigan (Mr. Walberg) and a Member opposed each will control 5 minutes.

The Chair recognizes the gentleman from Michigan.

Jackie Walorski, R-IN 2nd

Mrs. WALORSKI. With all due respect to the gentleman and his point on all these ``checkoffs,'' this is a tax that the American people themselves resoundingly in 2011 have said, absolutely not. In fact, the American people put so much pressure on President [Page: H3906]

Obama, he actually backed off and rescinded this and moved it into a different time slot, which is what we're looking at today.

The people in my district are hardworking Americans. They're double-income households, single moms with kids under the age of 18 that are trying to raise up households, they're trying to pay for their bills, they're trying to pay their mortgage and they're trying to put gas in their car. And I think that we have a government and a Washington that is out of control when it comes to taxation. We don't need another tax coming out of Washington. We need help for American families.

With that, I would again urge my colleagues to support this amendment, and I reserve the balance of my time.
