    WILSON of South Carolina asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. WILSON of South Carolina. Mr. Speaker, people across America are hurting because ObamaCare is destroying jobs. Thousands of residents from North Augusta to Blythewood in South Carolina's Second Congressional District have appealed for answers to the difficulties they are facing because of the government health care takeover. Kathleen Sebelius has failed.

    Over the weekend, I heard from constituents who were applying for a second or third job because their current income will not cover the increased costs of health care. Others have shared stories of sticker shock because they pay three times more for the same coverage.

    Concerns have been vindicated by the projections of job losses by the National Federation of Independent Business because of the health care takeover.

    We must repeal and replace ObamaCare with a patient-centered plan that creates jobs, which has been long proposed by Congressman Dr. Tom Price, and puts personal health care decisions back into the people's hands.

    In conclusion, God bless our troops, and we will never forget September the 11th in the global war on terrorism.

    Congratulations to First Lieutenant Hunter Wilson for completing his service this year in Afghanistan.
