    CARDENAS asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. CARDENAS. Mr. Speaker, I have the honor and the privilege of being a United States Congressman, and with that comes tremendous responsibility. We have a country of over 320 million people--men, women, and children. And right now, we may be days away or even a couple of weeks away from watching the United States Senate possibly change healthcare for America like we have never seen before.

    I hope and pray that my colleagues in both Houses and the President of the United States try their best to make sure that we enhance healthcare access rather than divert more than 20 million people away from being able to see a doctor.

    Just last week I was visited by some young folks and I was given this red band called ``Will Power'' for a little boy named Will, who has gone through many operations. If these bills see the light of day and the President's desk and gets into law, people like Will just might not be around very much longer.

    Mr. Speaker, let's hope and pray that we do the right thing ____________________
