Mr. NEAL of Massachusetts. I yield myself 30 seconds.

Madam Speaker, the war in Iraq is going to cost more than $1 trillion. The VA hospital commitment that we are going to make for the next 30 years to our well-deserving veterans is going to cost an additional $1 trillion. That is the issue that is before us this afternoon.

I reserve the balance of my time.
