BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. PAPPAS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today because our country is in trouble. We are facing a devastating pandemic, an economic crisis, and things will continue to get worse if Congress fails to act.

I can't imagine there is a Member of this body who has not had the same conversations I have had with small business owners, healthcare professionals, local leaders, educators, and workers out of a job.

People are exasperated. They are hurting and they are tired. They feel like Washington isn't coming through for them, and they are right.

We have a job to do, not as Republicans or Democrats, but as Representatives who are here to serve the people in our districts and secure the future of this Nation.

This week, Members of the House and Senate announced a framework for COVID relief legislation. It is not everything everyone wants, no compromise is, but it will fundamentally save lives and keep our economy moving forward.

Heading home for the holidays without addressing this crisis will have disastrous consequences, so let's all commit ourselves to this process of finding a way forward and getting to ``yes.''
