    PITTENGER asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. PITTENGER. Mr. Speaker, President Reagan once told us that the nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ``I'm from the government, and I'm here to help.'' Well, the kind of help we have received, Mr. Speaker, has been more regulations, a greater tax burden, a bigger bureaucracy, and no growth for the American family, for American business.

    This week, we have the opportunity, Mr. Speaker, to change this course by passing the House 2016 budget, which cuts $5.5 trillion in spending while strengthening vital programs; calls for a fairer, simpler Tax Code to promote good-paying jobs and an opportunity economy; completely repeals ObamaCare; and puts a premium on accountability, efficiency, and effectiveness in all areas of the Federal Government.

    Now is the time to restore common sense and fiscal sanity to Washington.

    Mr. Speaker, I urge all my colleagues to support the House 2016 budget.
