BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. JORDAN of Ohio. I have put my notes away. I understand.

Madam Chairman, I want to thank the gentleman from Georgia for his work and the chairman for yielding time and the ranking member as well.

Look, this amendment is real simple. It recognizes a fundamental fact: Parents make better decisions than government does. And even though a few parents in some situations make poor decisions about the well-being of their children, in the vast majority of cases they make infinitely better decisions than the government, bureaucrats and politicians ever make.

That is why this is good public policy and why I support the amendment.
