    SCOTT of Georgia. Ladies and gentlemen of the Congress and United States of America, we stand here today and we're witnessing something that there has been a great hunger among the American people for, and that is to see, finally, Democrats and Republicans working together for the good of the United States. We're going to have that today. We're going to have a bill--all may not vote for it, but I think what is important here is that this is a product of a true compromise, with Republicans and with Democrats putting the United States of America foremost.

    I think we ought to have a tip of the hat to President Barack Obama, I think to Leader McConnell in the Senate, and certainly to our Vice President, Joe Biden, and to the leadership of Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, and Jim Clyburn over on our side. I know that our Republican friends have had a tussle here, but our tip of the hat to you as well, and certainly to my friend, David Dreier, who is in his ending time as chairman of the Rules Committee. Good luck, my friend.
