    MARCHANT of texas in the house of representatives Thursday, December 10, 2015 Mr. MARCHANT. Mr. Speaker, the President has repeatedly underestimated ISIS, and under-responded to the threat they pose. The American people have lost confidence.

    For months we have heard the same refrain from the White House. They say, ``We will degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS.'' There has been little progress, if any. Top U.S. military officials have confirmed that ISIS is far from contained.

    When the President addressed the nation from the Oval Office on Sunday, Americans needed to hear a real strategy to eradicate ISIS. The speech came just days after an act of terror here at home. Instead of a plan, our Commander in Chief delivered the same empty rhetoric.

    The United States must show our international partners that we are committed to defeating ISIS. The first step is for the President to outline a plan to destroy them . . . not degrade them.

    Until that point, the vacuum of American leadership will continue to grow, and so will the influence of ISIS.
